SRT Approach v3.11

 ------------------------------------

SMKI and Repository Testing (SRT) assures that the SMKI and Repository systems work effectively together to meet the requirements set out in the Smart Energy Code (SEC).

Testing will be undertaken in accordance with the SRT Approach document which is approved by the SEC Panel. This includes Exit Criteria that must be met before  testing can conclude. We will check that these have been achieved and will publish a Completion Report for approval by the SEC Panel.

Parties are able to conduct SMKI and Repository Entry Process Tests (SREPT) during this test stage if they choose to do so. Further information can be found on the Entry Process Testing page.

Successful completion of the SREPT is a requirement before a Party or RDP is entitled to:
