We are administrators for the Connection and Use of System Code (CUSC), the Grid Code (GC), the System Operator – Transmission Owner Code (STC), and the Security & Quality of Supply Standard (SQSS).

That means we’re here to support those in the industry who want to propose changes, debate important issues and drive key outcomes in the code modification processes. So whether you’re new to the process, or experienced in the way it all works, we’ll help you get to the information you need.
