Customer Change Team Leader


The allowable values for the ‘DCC Service Flag’ data item in the DXI File Format, E46 record, need to be updated to be in line with those proposed by SEC MP077 ‘DCC Service Flagging’. The new DCC Service Flag states should align to what is written in the SEC and allow Users to tell the difference between Devices on a Smart Metering System (SMS) that are Active, installed but not commissioned or decommissioned.

The SEC proposal is seeking to remove the allowable values of “S” - Suspended and “W” – Withdrawn and replace them with values of “N” – Non-Active and “I” – InstalledNotCommissioned.

This Change is in scope of November 2021 Major Release.
