Section K: Classification and Registration of Metering Systems and BM Units
identifying the Parties that are responsible for Imports and/or Exports of energy at Boundary Points;
registering the Metering Systems that measure Imports and Exports of energy in the names of the Parties responsible for them;
registering Primary BM Units and assigning Primary BM Units to Trading Units;
registering the Metering Systems at Systems Connection Points in the names of the Parties responsible for them;
the approval of Line Loss Factors by the Panel;
the process to be followed in the event that a Supplier Fails; and
registering Secondary BM Units.
ensured that Metering Equipment is in place to measure the amounts of any Exports and (separately) Imports that they are responsible for (Section L contains details about the requirements of Metering Equipment);
registered the corresponding Metering Systems;
established and registered BM Units;
assigned each BM Unit to a Trading Unit.
installed to measure Imports and Exports at the Boundary Points associated with the Site for which a Party is responsible; or
installed to measure Imports and Exports a at Interconnector Boundary Points; or
installed to measure flows of electricity at Systems Connection Points at a Site; or
measuring Imports and Exports at a Metering Point, where the Metering System is registered in a Supplier Meter Registration Service (SMRS).
Metering Systems for Plant and/or Apparatus directly connected to the Transmission System;
Metering Systems measuring Imports and/or Exports from Licensable Generating Plant (i.e. Generating Plant that is not Exemptable);
Metering Systems measuring Imports and/or Exports for an Interconnector;
any other Metering Systems where the Party applies and the Panel agrees that they should be registered in CMRS;
Metering Systems associated with System Connection Points.
the Plant and/or Apparatus associated with the Metering System is disconnected and the Metering System is de-registered;
(where this is allowed) the Metering System becomes registered in SMRS; or
the Registrant withdraws from the registration and another Party becomes responsible for the registration.
Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) Modules or Power Park Modules with Metering Systems registered in CMRS;
the station transformer of a Generating Plant whose Metering Systems are registered in CMRS;
premises which are directly connected to the Transmission System at a single Boundary Point;
premises which are directly connected to the Transmission System at more than one Boundary Point, provided that the total Imports to the Plant and/or Apparatus are equal to or less than size of a Small Power Station as defined in the Grid Code (size applicable to both Imports and Exports);
an Interconnector BM Unit (see below);
a Base BM Unit or an Additional BM Unit (see below);
a Combined Offshore BM Unit (with the agreement of the NETSO); and
an Offshore Power Park Module or Combined Offshore BM unit together with any related Plant and Apparatus used to Import electricity to the Offshore Power Park Module or Combined Offshore BM Unit connected to the Transmission System at separate Boundary Points.
only one Party is responsible for the Imports and/or Exports from or to the Plant and/or Apparatus registered in CMRS (another Party may be responsible for an SMRS registered connection as in point (d));
the Imports and/or Exports relating to the BM Unit are capable of being controlled independently of any other Imports and/or Exports which do not relate to the BM Unit;
the quantities of electricity Imported and/or Exported in relation to that BM Unit in any Settlement Period are or will be submitted to the Settlement Administration Agent (SAA) for Settlement separately from any quantities of Imported and/or Exported electricity from Plant and/or Apparatus not comprised in the BM Unit;
the BM Unit does not contain Plant and/or Apparatus whose Imports and Exports are measured by both CVA and SVA Metering Systems except where:
Plant and Apparatus with a Registered Capacity of less than or equal to the size of a Small Power Station (as defined in the Grid Code) may be aggregated up to the size of a Small Power Station (size applicable to both Imports and Exports) within a single BM Unit. A BM Unit comprised of Plant and Apparatus with a Registered Capacity of greater than the size of a Small Power Station must be the smallest aggregation of the Plant and Apparatus for which the requirements mentioned in (a) to (c) would be met.
where different Parties are responsible for the Import to and Export from the same Plant and Apparatus. In this scenario each Party must register a BM Unit, one for the Import and one for the Export;
Power Park Modules which belong to a Switching Group.
It submits Final Physical Notification (FPN) data to the NETSO; and
It is not an Interconnector BM Unit; and
It is one of the following:
a production BM Unit; or
an Exempt Export BM Unit.
Secondary BM Unit must only comprise Plant and Apparatus measured by Half Hourly SVA Metering Systems within the same GSP Group; and
Half Hourly SVA Metering System can only be allocated to one Secondary BM Unit.
A description of the service to be provided under the BSC, including service availability and terms;
Entry requirements regarding the obligation to deliver, and right to receive, an SMRS;
The minimum service levels that SMRAs must meet and the associated liquidated damages payable to Suppliers, Data Aggregators and Elexon if they do not (except in specified circumstances of SMRA Force Majeure);
Obligations regarding the accuracy and provision of SMRS data; and
How LDSOs may levy charges on Suppliers, Data Aggregators and Elexon for providing additional related services.
