Publication date

Closing date
27th April 2015
Policy areas

We are consulting on proposed modifications to Regulatory Instructions and Guidance, including the reporting templates for the Smart Meter Communication Licences. These instructions and guidance will provide the basis on which the DCC must report key price control information to us.

Following the first ex post review of DCC’s 2013/14 costs we are proposing some modifications to the RIGs to provide further description and clarity. We would like your views on the modifications we are proposing to RIGs and the reporting templates. We have published revised versions of these today alongside this consultation.

At present we plan to publish the final RIGs in May. DCC will be required to use the modified RIGs they report their Price Control Information for the Regulatory Year 2014/15 by 31 July 2015. Please send us your views on this consultation before 5pm on 27 April 2015.
