Ofgem Consultation – British Gas Request for change to its inspection licence obligations

Ofgem have recently published its Consultation to seek views from the industry as to whether the proposed changes to the metering inspection obligation (proposed by British Gas, which follows the 2009 two-year must read obligations consultation) would be in the best interests of consumers, and how consumer protection might be ensured if these changes take place.

The proposal could have significent impacts on the ability to identify meter tampering and the illegal abstraction of electricity or gas.
