MP133 – ‘Consequential changes to the SEC Section G’ Modification Report Consultation (Closing Date: 7 August 2020)

MP133 – ‘Consequential changes to the SEC Section G’ Modification Report Consultation

Currently in the Smart Energy Code (SEC) Section G, G1.7 lists exclusions for Export Suppliers and Registered Supplier Agents (RSAs). There it states if you are a Data Communications Company (DCC) User who acts in either of those two User Roles, then SEC Section G’s obligations don’t apply except for the ones listed under G1.7. The “Shared Resources” section isn’t currently listed under G1.7, which means Export Suppliers and RSAs can ignore those obligations whilst not being in breach of the SEC.
The solution is to add the “Shared Resources” Sections G5.25 – G5.28 to G1.7 so that Export Suppliers and RSAs are still obligated to follow these requirements.

Who should respond?

  • Stakeholders
  • Those interested in the Section G ‘Security’ of the SEC
