These connections are called installation control points (ICPs). Each ICP has a unique identifier. Various participants are required to enter information into the registry about the ICP:

  • Distributors create the ICP and enter information about the network connection of the ICP (such as the GXP, address, loss factors etc.)
  • MEPs enter information about the metering located at the ICP (such as meter serial number(s), AMI status, register content codes etc.)
  • Retailers enter information about the reconciliation process at the ICP (such as the retailers participant ID, reconciliation type, profile etc.)

The registry facilitates the exchange of information between retailers, metering equipment providers and distributors to manage reconciliation, invoicing and switching processes. The registry also manages the switching process.

Part 11 of the Code details the management of information held by the registry and outlines the process for switching ICPs between retailers, metering equipment providers and distributors.

The registry provides next day notification of any changes made to registry information to registry users affected by the change, for instance the registry notifies a retailer if one of its ICPs has switched suppliers.
