About Consultation

This consultation invites comments on proposals of the Water Services Regulation Authority (Ofwat) to modify Condition B (Charges) of the conditions of the appointments (licences) of specific water companies.

Our proposed licence modifications would alter the effect of the Revenue Forecasting Incentive (RFI) formula, which was notified to each of the above water companies under Condition B of their licences as part of our 2019 price review (PR19).

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. This consultation is a Notice under section 13 of the WIA91.
