CACoP

What is the Code Administrator Code of Practice (CACoP)

  • The Code Administration Code of Practice (CACoP) was introduced following Ofgem’s Code Governance Review. The purpose of the code is to “facilitate convergence and transparency in code modification processes and to help protect the interests of small market participants and consumers through various means including increased use of plain English in modification reports”.
  • Where possible, Code Administrators have committed to operating their Code Administration functions in accordance with the Code of Practice.

The CACoP contains 14 principles to facilitate convergence and transparency in code Modification processes and to help protect the interests of small market participants and consumers. The title of each of the 14 principles can be seen below and once expanded, you will find further commentary with respect to how how we achieve each of the principles.
