DR1189 – Additional code in the 017MM to select a de-energisation with a Service Removal

An additional code should be added the MeterPointStatusReason on the 017MM to allow an additional reason to select a de-energisation with service removal.

* D04 De-energise (Not NPA related and Service Removal)

This will allow ESB Networks to out sort the de-energisations with a D04 code to ensure they are not scheduled as a D01 if the email does not come in.
D04 should only be used where a full and permanent service removal is being requested.

MCR1193 – Tibco Reconciliation file to include list of TxRefNums

When there is a discrepancy in the reconciliation process the solution to identify the missing message(s) is quite cumbersome. Currently the 602 MM provides the type and count of messages sent/received between 03:00 am yesterday to 03:00 am today but no further details of the unique messages sent / received.

A list of all TrxRefNums inbound and outbound for each Supplier with the status of “completed” on the Central Hub for the same time period as the 602MM i.e. 03:00:00 to 02:59:59 will be created on the Central Hub.

The delivery method will be the creation of a daily file via email. The use of the 602 message is not recommended as due to the potential size of these daily lists in particular for larger Suppliers.

MCR 1033 – September 2013

MCR 1033 involves populating the Market Participant Business Reference on a number of 300 series Market Messages thereby facilitating the identification of readings and the events that triggered them.

Currently the Market Participant Business Reference is available but not populated. ESB Networks assessed the changes required to Central Market Systems to support this MCR as of high complexity.

The following table will display a status of the MCR delivery process.

Event Date Status
Participant Questionnaire issued 30th June 2014
Participant Questionnaire returned 21st July 2014
ESBN complete development TBD
Site visit to ESB Networks During period 21st July – 1st August 2014

MCR 1137 – April 2014

MCR 1137 introduces a change to the contents of the Downloadable Meter Points Data file whereby only billable meters will be shown.

At present non-billable meters are shown as well as billable meters. ESB Networks assessed the changes required to the Central Market Systems to support this MCR as of low complexity.

The following table will display a status of the MCR delivery process.

Event Date Status
Participant Questionnaire issued 7th March 2014 Complete
Participant Questionnaire returned 14th March 2014 Complete

Planning – 2014 Non Schema Release

The CER approved the introduction of the Non Schema Release 2014 on the 06 February 2014. RMDS will co-ordinate the release between ESBN, ROI Market Participants, Gemserv and CER. There will be an update on the Non Schema Release at each IGG until the final cutover in September 2014.

The cutover dates for the two MCRs are as follows:

  • MCR 1137 – Downloadable Meter Point Files to show only Billable meters
  • MCR 1033 – Add MP Business Reference to response Market Messages

ESB Networks is planning delivery of a few Market Facing defects as part of the overall Non Schema release 2014. These include:

  • Actual reads not being used in 016MM when timeslot not provided – Estimated delivery date 17th September 2014 with MCR1033
  • 017 R/E message resulted in a D/E order being created – Estimated delivery date June 2014
  • 2 reads in one message – Estimated delivery date March 2015

The Working Practice sets out a four stage approach with requirements outlined for each stage.

Stage 1 – Regulatory Engagement with CRU

Stage 2 – Engagement with MRSO

Stage 3 – Customer Engagement

Stage 4 – Migration of MPRNs

MCR1184 – Cooling off for CoS

The customers’ right to the cooling off period is detailed in Directive 2011/83/EU, which was transposed into Irish legislations through the Statutory Instrument S.I. No. 484 of 2013.

It provides, inter alia, for the right of a customer to change their mind and cancel a registration with a Supplier. Suppliers must adhere to the provisions of these laws.

The following MCR outlines how this would work in the Retail Market
