Currently the COM_REG and DOM_REG files made available on the SFTS do not contain the Meter Multiplier or the Meter Category consistently across both of these files.
The objective of this DR is that a supplier should be able to obtain the Meter Category and Meter Multiplier within both the COM_REG and DOM_REG files.
The Meter Multiplier and Meter Category is used by some Suppliers for validating data between ESBN and their own systems. It becomes particularly relevant when validating technical information at a premise. The driver behind the DR is to enable accurate Supplier data validation of the Meter Multiplier and Meter Category to all MPRNs held in the COM_REG and DOM_REG files.
