About Consultation

This document invites comments on our proposals for self-supply licences. We set out modifications to the standard conditions of the Water Supply and Sewerage Licenses (“WSSL”), which we would expect a self- supply licensee to operate in accordance with.

Elements of the proposals were included in our June 2015 consultation on licensing and policy issues in relation to the opening of the non-household retail market. However, the specific text of the proposed modifications to the WSSL standard conditions was not included in that consultation and the Secretary of State has now published WSSL standard conditions including the enabling provision for the Customer Protection Code of Practice.

We are therefore undertaking a further consultation to give stakeholders the chance to provide any final comments on the proposed modifications to the WSSL standard conditions.
