Interface Specifications

Interface Specifications describe the interfaces between the DCC solution and its Users and how they are intended to work. They contain definitions of the interface formats to help Users integrate their business systems with the DCC solution.

We publish and maintain a number of interface specification documents to guide our Users to enable their systems to interact with DCC services.

Some of the interface specifications are available in two variants:

  • Subsidiary documents to the Smart Energy Code which highlight the obligations on all parties. This variant of the specification is binding on all
  • Technical interface specifications  which are intended primarily for technical audiences and our Users' system integrators. This variant, where available, is for technical guidance purposes only

The following interface specifications have been produced in consultation with engaged SEC Parties via a series of Design Forums and formal consultations:
