Under the Retail Code Consolidation and the Switching Significant Code Reviews, Ofgem is working with stakeholders on the creation of a new Retail Energy Code (REC). We are publishing the latest working drafts of REC schedules here for transparency, along with draft proposed amendments to licences to facilitate these Significant Code Reviews.

We paused stakeholder engagement and consultations on the Retail Energy Code in March 2020 to allow stakeholders to prioritise the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The documents published here may therefore contain material not previously discussed with stakeholders. They should be regarded purely as working drafts.

We expect to resume stakeholder discussions on these drafts in the coming weeks and to consult on them formally in the autumn of this year. We do not currently expect engagement or comments on these documents, but are open to receive views or questions.

More detailed information on a number of these working drafts is contained in the information document “REC Schedules: Working Drafts July 2020” below.

Update 10/07/2020 - Proposed REC v1.1 and switching schedules* are now available below. For more information about REC v1.1, please see the relevant cover note.

Update 14/07/2020 - The data specification and associated standards are now available below.

Update 27/07/2020 - Documents showing the proposed changes to licences are now available below. Note that as with the REC working drafts, proposed licence changes have been published for visibility and are not yet subject to formal consultation.

If you have questions or would like to provide feedback on the schedules or licence changes published here, please contact
