Ofgem consultation on charging methodology governance

Ofgem consultation (33 pages, PDF) on options for the governance of network charging methodologies. This is only a small slippage from the published timetable for the review of industry codes governance.

The document outlines options for introducing governance arrangements similar to those of the BSC or CUSC for the structure of electricity and gas distribution and transmission charges. The focus is on procedural issues, for example whether and how rights of appeal to Competition Commission panel might be given. There is no analysis of interactions with Ofgem's proposal to direct distribution companies to adopt particular charging methods.
