AQ Review

The Annual Quantity (AQ) Review Process

The AQ Review process is an annual series of activities, undertaken in line with the Uniform Network Code (UNC), which culminate in the recalculation of the AQ for all gas meter points.

This is a major transactional timeline, which requires an extraordinary volume of data to be processed. As a result (during September and October), it will impact upon the way Xoserve handles Supply Point Administration (SPA) files and also data availability within the Data Enquiry Service (DES).

In order to mitigate and minimise any disruption to the gas industry, a dedicated Xoserve Project team coordinates the whole end to end process. We are committed to ensuring communications are triggered strategically and in a timely fashion throughout the project life cycle. We will continue to keep all affected stakeholders fully updated on key activities and impacts, including preparation in the build up to implementation and the 1st October Go-Live date.

If you have any specific questions about the AQ Review process, please contact your Xoserve Operational contact or Shipper Engagement Business Partner.
