REC Version 3.0 Drafting Update

As part of the Ofgem’s Switching Significant Code Review (SCR), RECCo is developing the REC V3.0 drafting.

The REC V3.0 documentation will provide the governance for the implementation of the new Central Switching Service (CSS) and switching programme arrangements.

REC V3.0 drafting was consulted on by Ofgem in March 2021 and industry responses have since been reviewed in open forum under the Regulatory Design User Group (RDUG). RDUG members are continuing to scrutinise REC V3.0 Schedules and Service Definitions ahead of baselining under the Ofgem led Regulatory Group. The baselined REC documents will be made available to industry participants via the REC Portal as soon as they are available and the REC Code Manager will notify REC Parties once they have been published.

Ofgem’s Regulatory Group plan to baseline the REC V3.0 Schedules and Service Definitions at the following meetings:

November Meeting (22nd)

REC Qualification and Maintenance Schedule
REC Metering Operations Schedule
REC Related Metering Point Schedule
REC Consumer Facing Switching and Billing Problems Schedule
