CDSP reject potentially valid opening reads where there has been a Class change on transfer date.
There are not a large number of elected DM sites (Class 2) so the number of instances where this will occur is limited, but at the moment the UK Link system is not allowing the opportunity to the incoming Shipper to provide an Actual Meter Reading until D+5 as defined within the UNC where the site is transferring from a DM Class to an NDM Class (e.g. Class 2 to Class 3 or 4).
The same window applies in the UNC where the Supply Meter Point moves from NDM to DM, this might work more effectively as typically an estimate is generated on D which may be replaced as an actual without being flagged as a replacement reading.
This change will, in the analysis period, assess each of the scenarios of migration from one Class to another which involve a Class change from DM to NDM and vice versa and understand the current volumes associated with each scenario. It will make recommendations for changes, if necessary, following assessment with Shippers.
