About Consultation

This consultation invites comments on our proposal to modify Condition I of Wessex Water Services Limited’s (Wessex Water) Instrument of Appointment (licence). Our proposed licence modification would insert the requirement relating to having adequate systems of planning and internal control to enable it to carry out its regulated activities. This modification will bring Wessex Water’s licence in line with the licences of all other large water and sewerage companies, which currently contain this requirement in Condition P.

Under section 13 of the Water Industry Act 1991 (WIA91), we are able to modify the conditions of a company’s licence if it agrees to the change we are proposing to make. Wessex Water has indicated its consent to this modification.

Before making modifications under section 13 of the WIA91, Ofwat must give notice in accordance with that section. In respect of Wessex Water’s licence, this document is a Notice under section 13 of the WIA91.

Where to send submissions

We invite Wessex Water and other stakeholders to comment on our proposed modification by 29 July 2021.

Wessex Water’s formal response to our proposal must indicate whether or not the company accepts the modification proposed. Subject to agreement, we aim to amend Wessex Water’s licence by 26 August 2021.
