From the MEC meeting held on 27th March 2018 the following headlines have been captured:

  • MEC has confirmed the process for the prepayment allocation run in 2018, which would cover
    an extended backstop period from 1st July 2012 to 30th June 2014. Notification for Prepayment
    Metering Infrastructure Provider (PPMIPs) to distribute funds is due to be sent in August 2018,

    calendar of dates will be maintained in future years.

    under MAP17 for MRA system changes – i.e. changes to ECOES and GDCC that are not
    currently governed within the existing change process.
  • MEC has agreed changes to the IREG and MRASCo Security Committee (MSC) terms of
    reference; the changes aim to improve communication and consultation between security and

    applications for ECOES extracts from Meter Asset Providers.
  • MEC approved one application for access to the MRA from Flexitricity Ltd.
