In December 2018 we consulted on the RIIO-2 sector specific methodology. Consultation responses highlighted a degree of confusion surrounding the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) consideration of price control appeals, and also highlighted potential case management issues. We wrote to the CMA asking for clarification as whilst there are previous CMA determinations touching on these issues, we consider that prospective appellants and wider stakeholders would benefit from clarification from the CMA in advance of the first RIIO-2 appeal window opening in early 2021. Here we set out our letter to the CMA requesting such clarification. See the CMA’s response.
