About the MRA

The Master Registration Agreement is the multi-party agreement between all licensed electricity Distribution Businesses and Suppliers.

The MRA sets out terms for the provision of Metering Point Administration Services (MPAS Registrations), and procedures in relation to the Change of Supplier to any premise/metering point.

The MRA Service Company (MRASCo) is a joint-venture company established and maintained by all MRA parties. Its role is to administer the MRA and undertake any development activities required by the UK electricity retail processes under the scope of the Agreement. MRASCo further provides the secretariat functions to support the MRA Executive Committee.

Since 1998 the evolution of the working arrangements between Suppliers, Distribution Businesses and the Settlement Bodies has required that the agreement changes with time and as a result new versions are released regularly. The latest version of the MRA can be downloaded from the MRA Products section of this website.

About the Green Deal

The Green Deal is a Government initiative that enables consumers to make energy efficiency improvements to their property, with costs recouped through instalments in the energy bill.

The Green Deal Central Charge (GDCC) database has been developed for use by electricity Suppliers and Green Deal Providers under the MRA. MRASCo has the role of ensuring that required changes to the MRA, and its associated products, are implemented to support the ongoing delivery of the Green Deal.

Role of Gemserv

Gemserv Limited is the service company established by the retail GB electricity market to provide governance management skills and expertise to utility markets as a whole.

The establishment of Gemserv is recognition that the work in support of the MRA could be beneficially applied into other markets for the mutual benefit of all parties.

Gemserv is a completely separate legal entity from MRASCo and the provisions of the services as set out in the MRA are the subject of a Services Agreement between Gemserv and MRASCo. Any alteration to the Services Agreement requires the unanimous approval of the MRA Executive Committee and this arrangement ensures that electricity services are protected.
