On the 26th March 2012, Ofgem announced a new regulatory framework to reinvigorate industry efforts to tackle gas theft. This will protect consumers by giving incentives to gas suppliers to detect and prevent theft and to establish minimum standards for theft investigations.
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.
