We are developing a Retail Energy Code that governs the new, faster and more reliable switching arrangements as well as bringing together and updating the governance of existing gas and electricity retail arrangements. This document consults on a part of this new industry code known as the REC Technical Specification. The REC Technical Specification will incorporate:

  • a data specification;
  • security and data protection requirements;
  • testing arrangements for market entrants and to support market innovation; and
  • service definitions for each of the services specified by the REC.

We would like views from people with an interest in the REC, its delivery and operation. We particularly welcome responses from market participants, those representing consumers’ interests and other stakeholders.
