This document invites comments on two proposed modifications of the conditions of the appointment of each of the 17 largest water companies in England and Wales.
The first proposed modification would prohibit water companies from showing undue preference towards or undue discrimination against themselves, other water companies (including new appointees, sometimes referred to as ‘NAVs’), water supply and/or sewerage licensees or unlicensed third parties in relation to the provision of certain water and sewerage services.
The second proposed modification would place restrictions on the circumstances in which water companies could externally disclose or internally use information they were provided with in relation to the submission of bids to provide certain services or agreements for the adoption of infrastructure.
We invite stakeholders to comment on the proposed modifications by no later than 14 August 2018. Each relevant water company should also indicate its acceptance or otherwise of the proposed modification by this date. You can email your responses to [email protected] or post them to: Licence changes consultation, PR19, Ofwat, Centre City Tower, 7 Hill Street, Birmingham B5 4UA.
