SMKI and Repository Testing

Changes to SRT Approach document

DCC is consulting on minor changes to the SMKI and Repository Testing (SRT) Approach document, to update content relating to the third part of SRT (SRT3), currently being undertaken by DCC to test SMKI Recovery processes.

We are seeking general views on the introduction of the new SRT content, shown as tracked changes.  Please provide responses by 10am on Tuesday 18th April to  

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.


Guide to SMKI and Repository Entry Process Tests

The Guide to SMKI and Repository Entry Process Tests sets out the information that a Party is required to provide in support of its application to complete the SMKI and Repository Entry Process Tests (SREPT).

This document provides further explanation of the testing approach set out in the SMKI and Repository Test Scenarios Document.

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

(a) apply to become an Authorised Subscriber for the purposes of any Certificate Policy; or
(b) access the SMKI Repository.

SRT Approach v3.9

The SRT Approach Document v3.9 was approved by the SEC Panel on 8 March 2016 (subject to no material comments being raised in the March 2016 consultation).
