Changes and Amendments
The user change and amendment process is for all customers. The process handles any contractual changes and other business changes that are necessary to continue day-to-day operations in the gas market.
These processes help ensure the integrity of every system and network for everyone in the gas market.
Changes and amendments can include:
- Company name and address changes
- Creation of new Suppliers/Allocation Agents/Storage Agents on the UK Link System
- Changes to Information Exchange (IX) equipment (such as additional equipment or relocation)
- System access registration or change
- User agent appointments and cancellations
- VAT de-registration or changes.
The process also helps with contractual arrangements when company mergers, de-mergers and acquisitions take place, for example.
Contact the Customer Life Cycle Team if you need any help.

Energy Identification Codes (EIC) for Gas
The Energy Identification Code (EIC) scheme allows organisations operating in the energy market to trade. We are the Local Issuing Office (LIO) for the GB gas market and handle all EIC requests.
Termination and Voluntary Discontinuance
There are two ways that shipper and trader users can exit the gas market:
- Voluntary Discontinuance
Once the relevant process has been completed, the shipper or trader will stop being a user under the UNC.
How to Exit the Market Through Voluntary Discontinuance
Voluntary Discontinuance is the controlled process from the UNC that must be completed to exit the gas market.
To exit the market, users must issue a Discontinuance Notice to the relevant transporter.
The user must also ensure that:
- All amounts payable or due have been paid in full
- That they are not the registered user of any supply point
- That there are no outstanding imbalances or reconciliations
All terms of the UNC relating to voluntary discontinuance are explained in the User Information Pack for Voluntary Discontinuance.
All obligations within Section 17 of the Data Services Contract (DSC) Terms and Conditions must also be satisfied.
