Deadline for Responses

This Distribution Code public consultation is seeking the views from industry stakeholders on the proposed modification to Engineering Recommendation G5, subsequently referred to as EREC G5 Issue 5.
This modification has been prepared under the authority of the Distribution Code Review Panel (DCRP) – EREC G5 being a Qualifying Standard and Licence Standard under the Distribution Code.
The DCRP establish and maintain governance arrangements for standards referenced in the Distribution Codes that have a material effect on Users of the Distribution Systems. As such, EREC G5 will approved by the Authority (Ofgem) before publication.
Since Engineering Recommendation G5 is referenced in the Grid Code, this Distribution Code Consultation is also being targetted at Grid Code users to collect feedback from the wider industry, however any change to the Grid Code to reference EREC G5/5 rather than EREC G5/4 will be considered separately under the Grid Code governance arrangements.
The proposed EREC G5 Issue 5 constitutes a full technical revision of Issue 4 published in 2005 and has been extended, amongst other things, to cover assessment for concurrent connections
|Responses to this consultation should be sent to the Distribution Code Review Panel Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org by 17:00 on 19 April 2019.|
