Change Proposal Register

Changes to the DCUSA can be proposed by any Party and by certain other individuals specified in the DCUSA. There are a number of potential progression routes for each Change Proposal and this Change Register details the status of each of the current Change Proposals.

 

All Change Proposals are voted on by those DCUSA Parties affected by the change. Some changes to the DCUSA are self-governed, meaning that the Party vote determines whether or not the change is made. For other Change Proposals, that meet certain specified criteria, Ofgem makes the final decision and in these cases the Party vote acts as a recommendation to Ofgem, as to whether the change should be made.The below list contains all current Change Proposals, shown in descending numerical order. You can sort the Change Proposals by area and status. If you follow the link to the Change Proposal in question you can find out more about the Change Proposal, and where applicable the associated Working Group and their meetings to date.
