Consultation description

This document supplements the Government’s consultations on the draft legal text of the Smart Energy Code (SEC) and the Data and Communications Company (DCC) Licence – two key elements of the regulatory framework supporting the roll-out of smart metering in Great Britain.

It seeks views on proposed legal text to cover the transitional period between the point at which the DCC is awarded its Licence, to the time when the full smart metering arrangements are in place.
