Detail of outcome
The Government has concluded that 26 January 2015 will be the date for bringing Section H15 of the SEC into effect, designating the DCC Gateway Connection Code of Connection as a subsidiary document of the SEC and bringing into effect minor consequential changes to be made to Sections A, E3 and H15 of the SEC. The Government has issued a letter of designation to this effect. The Government will separately direct the DCC to bring forward provisions for inclusion in a subsequent version of the DCC Gateway Code of Connection relating to performance reporting by the 30 June 2015.
The Government is seeking views on its proposal for the dates on which the following steps occur:
The bringing into effect of Section H15 of the Smart Energy Code (SEC) relating to DCC Gateway Connections (which, subject to completion of the Parliamentary process, will be incorporated into the SEC by 12 January 2015 but only effective from a date to be designated by the Secretary of State); and
The designation of the DCC Gateway Connection Code of Connection as a subsidiary document of the SEC (subject to the procedure for document development being completed).
Subject to the completion of the Parliamentary process and of the procedure for document development, the Government proposes that the date to be designated for the purposes of both of the above will be 19 January 2015 or if necessary such later date as falls within the period from 20 January to 16 February 2015 (inclusive).
