The Smart Energy Code (SEC) came into force on 23 September 2013, when the Data Communication Company’s (DCC) licence was granted. The SEC is a multiparty contract which sets out the terms for the provision of the DCC’s services and specifies other provisions to govern the end-to-end management of smart metering in gas and electricity.
The DCC, suppliers and network operators are required by licence to become a party to the SEC and comply with its provisions. Other bodies who wish to use the DCC’s services, such as energy efficiency and energy service companies, must accede to the SEC to do so.
If you wish to discuss whether you need to be a party to this code and, if so, how to become one, please contact the Smart Energy Code Administration and Secretariat (SECAS).
