About Consultation

This consultation sets out our response following our 31 August 2016 to 27 September 2016 consultation on our proposed approach to derogations and consults further on certain aspects of our derogations guidance following the restructuring of the Wholesale Retail Code (WRC) and the Market Arrangements Code (MAC) as part of our consultations on the WRC (WRC consultation) and MAC (MAC consultation) and as a result of responses to that consultation.

Having considered responses to our consultation, we are not proposing to change our derogations policy. However, given the changes made to the WRC and MAC on which we consulted in 2016 and the amendments made to our guidance as a result, we wish to ensure that stakeholders have an opportunity to raise any issues that they feel should be considered in light the proposed amendments and, in particular the proposed implementation of the outcome of our derogations process through the revised WRC and MAC structure.

Please submit email responses to retailmarketopening@ofwat.gsi.gov.uk, with the subject ‘Consultation on derogations guidance’ or post them to: Consultation on derogations guidance,  Retail Market Opening Programme, Ofwat, 21 Bloomsbury Street, London, WC1B 3HF by Friday 10 February 2017.
