Customised price-quality paths requirements

This page contains information on the review of the input methodologies for customised price-quality paths (CPP requirements) topic being considered as part of the input methodologies review.

CPP requirements topic for the IM review

The CPP requirements topic for the IM review considered:

  • how default price-quality paths (DPPs) and CPPs work together
  • specific improvements to the CPP requirements.

The CPP requirements include:

  • the scope and specificity of information required
  • the extent of independent verification and audit
  • the extent of consultation and agreement with consumers
  • the criteria that the Commission will use to evaluate any proposal.

2015 and 2016 decisions on CPP requirements as part of the IM review

In November 2015, we completed some changes to the CPP requirements to add flexibility to the CPP process as part of the IM review. These changes were fast tracked as we expected we could potentially receive a CPP application prior to the completion of the main IM review in December 2016. Our final decision paper on the CPP fast track process is available below under the current documents section. More information, including our process and submissions, is available on the CPP fast track processes page.

In December 2016, we published our final decision for the main review of the CPP requirements. The final decision paper for the CPP requirements is available below. The full decisions package including overarching papers that support the CPP final decision paper is available on the main IM review page.

Current review of CPP information requirements for gas pipelines

The December 2016 decision did not include decisions on the CPP information requirements for gas pipeline businesses. This review is expected to be completed by December 2017 and information on the process is available on the Gas Pipelines page. The decision to defer this review was to allow time to take account of ownership changes in the gas sector that took place in 2015/2016.
