Code Administration Code of Practice
The Joint Office is committed to operating in line with the Code Administration Code of Practice, published by Ofgem. Any comments on the Code of Practice or how we can better comply with this would also be very welcome at any time - email firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the CACoP?
As part of Ofgem’s Code Governance Review, the Code Administration Code of Practice (CACoP), was established.
The CACoP is a cross energy industry code document and aims to provide consistency in the approach and level of service associated with Codes modification processes.
The CACoP contains a number of key principles to facilitate consistency, convergence and transparency in code Modification processes and to help protect the interests of small market participants and consumers through various means including increased use of plain English in Change Reports.
Cross Code Engagement (Modifications affecting multiple Codes)
In order to encourage Cross Code Engagement across the industry, Code Administrators have agreed how they will support any modifications affecting two or more Codes. This is detailed in the Code Administration Joint Working Practice available at: https://www.mrasco.com/changes/code-administration-code-of-practice
The Master Registration Agreement (MRA) website also publishes a regsiter of modifications which may have cross code impacts at: http://mrasco.com/change-proposals/code-administration-code-of-practice
The Chair and Secretariat services for the CACoP changes every 12 months between each Code Administrator in alphabetical order per Code. From 01 January 2018 to 31 December 2018, this will be the responsibility of DCUSA. Information with regards to the CACoP Committee meetings and activities can be found via the DCUSA website here
