Consultation description

We are seeking comments on the draft Energy Supply Company (Scotland) Administration Rules.

The draft rules should be read in conjunction with the consultation document on the Energy Supply Company Administration Rules for England and Wales, which sets out the approach we have taken to both the rules governing England and Wales and these.

The Energy Supply Company Administration (Scotland) Rules implement in Scotland provisions in the Energy Act 2011 for a special administration regime - Energy Supply Company Administration. Special administration regimes are alternative to ordinary insolvency procedures and are intended to ensure the continued operation of essential services in the event of a company becoming insolvent. The provisions in the Energy Act 2011 set out the broad legal framework for Energy Supply Company Administration. The draft Energy Supply Company Administration (Scotland) Rules set out how Energy Supply Company Administration would operate in practice and are similar to those for ordinary administration. The draft rules apply to companies that only the courts in Scotland have jurisdiction to wind up.

The consultation on the draft Energy Supply Company Administration Rules for England and Wales has now closed. We are considering the responses and aim to publish the Government response to the consultation later this year.
