Distributed unmetered load audits

Reconciliation participants that trade a distributed unmetered load must submit audits and compliance plans annually for each of their distributed unmetered load databases.

Distributed unmetered load

A distributed unmetered load (DUML) is an unmetered load:

  • with a single profile
  • with a single customer
  • across more than one point of connection.

The most common form of distributed unmetered load is streetlights.

What the distributed unmetered load audit covers

DUML participants must submit an annual audit report and compliance plan for each of their DUML database(s). The audit includes checking that the:

  • database contains all of the required information
  • information recorded in the database is complete and accurate
  • volume information for the DUML is being calculated accurately 
  • DUML profiles have been correctly applied.
