Detail of outcome
Special Licence Condition 2N deals with the protection and transfer of EMR related information received by National Grid in its role as the EMR Delivery Body. The consultation notified stakeholders of some minor changes required to be made to the licence to address some ambiguities which might otherwise frustrate the proper working of the Special Condition. In addition the consultation sought views on some proposed changes to the licence condition to allow National Grid to carry out certain EMR functions as required by regulation, to enable them to comply. A summary of views received and the government’s response is provided in the document.
We sought views in this consultation on the implementation of amendments 4,5,6 and 7 only. Our policy aim in making these amendments is to ensure that transparent measures are in place to allow the transfer of information as necessary for all those with EMR functions (the Secretary of State, the Delivery Body and the LCCC) to carry out those functions as smoothly and efficiently as possible whilst being alive to, and managing, any potential conflicts of interest which may arise by maintaining effective safeguards to ensure the safekeeping of confidential EMR information. We were grateful for your views on each of the proposed changes described in this consultation notice.
