This consultation seeks stakeholder views on proposed changes to the existing version of the Enduring Change of Supplier (ECoS) Transition and Migration Approach Document (ETMAD) (version 2.0) or Smart Energy Code (SEC) Appendix AS, to be re-designated ahead of ECoS Go Live.
DCC recently consulted on the Go Live ETMAD which will define DCC and Supplier Party rights and obligations during the ECoS Migration Period. This consultation closed on 18 January 2023 and DCC published its conclusions document on 28 March 2023.
As part of the ECoS Go Live preparation activities, DCC has identified the possible need for a pre ECoS Go Live change to the ETMAD to enable ECoS Certificates to be provided to the ECoS Party. This will allow the ECoS Party to request production ECoS Certificates and for these to be subsequently provided to the Communications Service Providers (CSPs) prior to ECoS Go Live. This will enable the manufacturing process to commence for Communications Hubs to be used for the initial install and commission pilot exercise post ECoS Go Live. This proposed change would be applied to the existing version of the ETMAD and does not impact the drafting or designation of the Go Live ETMAD referenced above.
The attached consultation overview document summarises and seeks stakeholder feedback on the proposed changes to the existing ETMAD (version 2.0) which will be re-designated as soon as reasonably practicable following the consultation conclusion.
This consultation closes on Tuesday 25 April 2023 and responses should be sent using the attached template to email@example.com.
