For This Week
Respond to the DCP 428 'Zero REP-002/A Data' Consultation
The intent of DCP 428 is to add clarification to the DCUSA to specify how Parties should deal with zero or blank data in the supercustomer/aggregated billing messages, including for site specific when sending daily statements or raising invoices.
It is proposed to amend the DCUSA to make it clear that zero value statements and invoices will be issued. It will also require the User to notify the Company that zero sum invoices should be cleared down. Where the User does not do this, the Company will incur costs in pursuing the User for clarity on next steps and so admin fees may be payable. It was noted Distributors being able to pursue the admin fee is an entitlement but is not mandatory.
This is a Consultation issued to DCUSA Parties and any other interested parties seeking industry views on a number of questions with respect to DCP 428.
Parties are invited to submit comments using the form attached as Attachment 1 to [email protected] by 08 December 2023.
Respond to the DCP 429 'Obtaining an Independent Credit Assessment' Consultation
The intent of DCP 429 is to update Schedule 1 'Cover' where reference is made to the Company obtaining an Independent Credit Assessment from a recognised Credit Assessment Agency chosen by the User.
Currently, the legal text allows a User to request from the Company an Independent Credit Assessment from a specific agency and that Users can quite often choose any one of a number of different Credit Assessment Agencies. These Credit Assessment Agencies charge for an annual subscription or can charge a large one-off fee.
It is proposed to amend the DCUSA so that a User can either provide their own Independent Credit Assessment procured from a Recognised Credit Assessment Agency or accept the one from the Company.
This consultation has been issued to DCUSA Parties seeking views on a number of questions with respect to DCP 429.
Parties are invited to submit comments using the form attached as Attachment 1 to [email protected] by 13 December 2023.
