GC0122 - Amending references to NGET and the Company within the Grid Code following previous modifications

Modification status: Concluded

Last updated: 24 April 2019

This modification seeks to make changes originally raised within GC0120 at
the Grid Code Review Panel (GCRP) on 28 February 2019 to make minor
corrections resulting from the work on legal separation. The GCRP’s
decision in relation to GC0120 was to implement the definition changes in
relation to “The Company” as directed by Ofgem in their decision letter for
GC0112 ‘National Grid Legal Separation Grid Code changes to incorporate
NGESO’.
The reasons given by the GCRP for not accepting the other proposed
changes to the Grid Code related to them being more material than could
be accepted within the proposed governance route. Several references that
originally specified “NGET”, and were subsequently changed to “The
Company” by GC0115, were changed to the “Relevant Transmission
Licensee”. The Panel stated that further analysis is required in relation to
these changes before they can be implemented in the Grid Code.


As a consequence of the GCRP’s decision the Grid Code still contains the
identified defects. This modification seeks to make the previous changes
identified by GC0120 and similar changes to the Demand Response
Services and European Connection Conditions; however, references to
“Relevant Transmission Licensee” are omitted and in their place, it is
proposed that these revert to “NGET” as they were originally. A modification
will be raised at the panel in March that will propose to rectify these defects
by again considering their amendment to “Relevant Transmission Licensee”
and which can be taken forwards by an appropriate governance route.
