About Consultation

This consultation is about revising our guidance on bulk supply or discharge charges paid by new appointees (also known as NAVs or small companies) to larger water companies (incumbents).

It follows from our November 2020 conclusions on bulk charges for new appointees, which we publish alongside this consultation. This draft guidance sets out our approach to disputes and our expectations of incumbents when setting their bulk charges for new appointees.

Because the new appointments and variations framework applies to both England and Wales, this document relates to incumbents wholly or mainly in England (English incumbents) and incumbents wholly or mainly in Wales (Welsh incumbents).
