Consultation description

The Smart Energy Code (SEC) is a new industry code which has been created through, and comes into force under, the Data and Communications Company (DCC) Licence. The SEC is a multiparty contract which sets out the terms for the provision of the DCC’s Smart Meter communications service, and specifies other provisions to govern the end-to-end management of Smart Metering.

  • Notifying new commencement dates for SEC testing phases
  • Informal testing
  • Changes to the timings of when Communication Hubs can be ordered
  • DCC Key Infrastructure Policy Management Authority (DCCKI PMA)
  • Minor consequential change to the electricity and gas supply licence conditions
