Retrospective Data Updates - Progress Report 13th December

The latest update on our progress on the Proof of Concept for Retrospective Data Updates.

Published on 13 Dec 2019

We regularly provide our customers with updates on the industry-wide asset data cleansing exercise known as ‘Retrospective Data Updates’.

Focussing on Meter Asset data, the exercise sees us piloting a Proof of Concept (PoC) to help us work with customers to understand the level of discrepancies that exist and help us target our services and solutions to support Customers in improving data quality.

For more information on the Retrospective Data Updates exercise, please see our dedicated webpage or email us directly on

What's happened recently?

Additional Shippers have now signed up to the PoC phase, with eight Shippers confirming their participation in the project. Several million meter points will now be included within the Data Comparison and Analysis phases of the PoC.

What's happening next?

We will work with our Shippers to send and receive the portfolio data that will be used in the PoC. We will work closely with Shippers to triage the datasets and support successful file processing activities.

In the coming weeks, we will continue to define the detailed business rules for Level 2 Analysis, i.e. greater focus on Data Comparison results.

Our next progress report will be in January.
