MCR1189 – 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.
