Register content codes are unique codes specified in the electricity registry. Industry participants use register content codes and periods of availability for validating pricing, billing, certifying metering installations and creating submission information for the reconciliation manager.
Analysis of registry data highlighted inconsistencies and confusion about the application of some register content codes. The list of codes was brief and unstructured, leaving room for different interpretation and incorrect application. There was also a mixture of generic and customised codes adding unnecessary complexity.
We undertook this review of register content codes to address these issues and ensure the codes are fit for purpose for the future.
