Change

MOSL manages changes to the Market Arrangements Code (MAC) and Wholesale Retail Code (WRC) on behalf of the non-household market. Changes can be proposed by any industry participant and MOSL supports proposers to design and develop proposals prior to Panel review and Ofwat determination whether to implement the proposal. This page provides information on current changes, how to engage with the change process and how to propose new changes.

MOSL prepares a change report for the Panel each month describing the progress of each change proposal and the anticipated implementation programme.  The current change report can be downloaded from the link on the right.  Previous reports can be downloaded in the Panel papers.

MOSL may consult on behalf of the Panel to gather evidence on the need for and impact of a change proposal. Input from market participants and customers is welcomed and live consultations can be accessed through the link on the right.

If you wish to raise a change please follow the link on the right which provides templates and contact details to submit changes.

The Change Register below shows all proposals that have been formally submitted to change the Market Arrangements Code (prefixed CPM) or Wholesale Retail Code (prefixed CPW). Please use the filter and sort functions to navigate past and current changes and click on a change to view the documents associated with it.
