What are UK Link releases?

To minimise the impact on customers, we release changes and improvements to UK Link systems and services steadily throughout the year. This programme is called UK Link releases and we define them as:

  • Major releases – significant changes to functionality
  • Minor releases – smaller enhancements

2023 Major release dates

  • February 23 - Implementation 25 February 2023
  • June 23 - Implementation 24 June 2023
  • November 23 - Implementation 4 November 2023

2023 Minor release dates

  • Minor Release Drop 11 – Implementation 22 September 2023

2024 Major release dates

The Code Manager for the Retail Energy Code provided a view to align the implementation dates to deliver REC and other market sector changes with the implementation of Central Switching Services. Major Releases are proposed to align with the REC Release Schedule, unless agreed otherwise by DSC Change Management Committee.

Please see below the expected schedule of UK Link Major Release dates:

  • February 24 - Implementation 24 February 2024
  • June 24 - Implementation 27 June 2024
  • November 24 - Implementation 7 November 2024

Any amendments to the 2024 Major Release dates will be communicated via the Change Management Committee.

You can also check the status and view details of all Change Proposals submitted by DSC customers in the customer change register

We also deliver specific changes to UK Link, and to other processes, products and services, on an ad-hoc basis. These are delivered outside of a major and minor release and can be requested by DSC customers by submitting a Change Proposal.
