Switch Process Review - Issues with the ICP switching processes and possible options to address these issues
22 Oct – 17 Dec 2019
We are undertaking an operational review of the consumer and installation control point (ICP) identifier switching process between traders. The switching process is a critical industry process that transfers ICP identifiers from a losing trader to a gaining trader. The current switch process was created in October 2002, and there have been various changes made to the process since that time.
Late last year, as part of the market enhancements omnibus, we consulted on a number of issues that were hindering the smooth operation of ICP switching processes. After analysing submissions, we are carrying out a further consultation.
The paper – Switch Process Review - Issues with the ICP switching processes and possible options to address these issues sets out the issues and proposes amendments to the Code to address these issues.
We are holding a workshop in Wellington on 20 November to walk participants through the proposals. Vist the workshop webpage for more information and to register.
