Within the retail market, customer agreements must be in place before a 010MM can be submitted. In addition, a ten working day cooling off period must have been completed prior to the submission of the 010MM.
Currently there is no definitive facility within the market to validate the existence of a customer agreement and the ten working day cooling off period. The supply agreement flag contained within the MIG for meter registration assumes the existence of the customer agreement.
At the request of UR, changes to the 010MM are required to capture the associated customer agreement details.
This request will be scheme impacting and it is planned to implement a manual workaround for this solution until a schema release can be implemented.
If validations fail then a 102 R rejection message will be issued with a new data code in the RejectReasonCode field which will indicate that the timescales have failed validation.
The following data code values will be added to the Reject Reason data item in the co-ordinated baseline:
. ICW – Inside Cooling off Window
. OAW – Outside Agreement Window.
