Types of change

The two main types of changes that are implemented are:

  • Regulatory change
  • Service improvement

Regulatory change are required to ensure the service remains compliant with changes to the Regulations and Rules to the schemes we operator on behalf of LCCC and ESC.

Service improvement ensures the service provided continues to be best in class to our parties (Capacity Providers, CfD Generator and Suppliers). This can include small improvements to processes and interfaces or more significant service improvements e.g. a new Service Desk platform. Service improvements can be delivered as small incremental changes or a larger package of changes. EMRS may seek industry views to help inform service improvements.

The change process

Governance for upcoming changes to the Settlement Services sits with LCCC and ESC.
