Detail of outcome

The government’s response to its consultation on certain transitional arrangements with respect to the Smart Energy Code is published alongside its response to the Stage 4 Smart Energy Code (SEC) content (Part A).

The government has concluded that the transitional provisions consulted upon are appropriate and proportionate modifications to the existing regulatory framework.

We have noted an error in the ‘SEC4A and Transitional Arrangements government conclusions and further consultation text’ document. The correct definitions of DCC User Interface Specification and DCC User Interface Services Schedule are:

  • DCC User Interface Specification means the SEC Subsidiary Document identified as the ‘DCC User Gateway Interface Specification’ set out in Appendix [TBC].
  • DCC User Interface Services Schedule means the SEC Subsidiary Document of that name set out in Appendix [TBC].

We will amend the in force legal text at the earliest opportunity and apologise for any confusion caused.
