This XRN is being raised to explore the impacts to all CDSP systems including, but not limited to UK Link, Gemini, DES, CMS and DDP.

The investigation is to assess the implications and approximate costs to replicate the MPID reassignment principal in electricity (although not an exact process replica, it should be still designed to best suit gas).

The exploratory review should consider for all party/role types:

 - An MPID moving between different party types within the same group of companies

 - An MPID moving between different party types within different group of companies but driven by SoLR or acquisition activity (anything in addition of 5144 findings)

 - Consider separating the validation so the same ID can be recognised as multiple party types

 - High-level outlining of suggested amendments to the MDD process documents (or any other documents) which would be required to deliver the solution.

This XRN is to outline the possible options (and associated costs) for an industry decision to be made at the ChMC. The decision should be if any options should be progressed or not. If the process is to remain as-is then suggested wording to MDD process documentation will need to be put forward to CoMC.

For the avoidance of doubt, this XRN is exploratory analysis only, any changes will need to be a part B XRN or a new XRN.
