According to the Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specifications (SMETS), Great Britain Companion Specification (GBCS) use case definitions, the Data Communication Company (DCC) User Interface Specification (DUIS) and the Message Mapping Catalogue (MMC), values of week definition and date range cannot be configured; only the time of day can be configured via defined use case.
The Proposed Solution is to make amendments to GBCS Table 28d. A number of values currently found in this table conflict with what is stated in the SMETS, GBCS use case definitions, the DUIS, the MMC and the COSEM. The Proposed Solution is to amend the table so that the current conflicting values are corrected to align with the other Technical Specifications. This will mean that, once implemented, meter Manufacturers will be able to build Devices that comply with the Technical Specifications, removing any confusion as to which Technical Specification to follow.
