Note on I-SEM Go-Live “at Risk” status

21 March 2018

The I-SEM Energy Trading Arrangements Go-Live on 23rd May 2018 is being reported as “at Risk”. This mainly reflects the increased levels of risk being carried by the central programme, mostly surrounding defects, and is cognisant of the knock-on impact this has on market participant readiness.

The Regulatory Authorities and TSOs remain fully committed to maintaining the current go live date of 23rd May 2018 and acknowledge the significant efforts of all industry participants, vendors and partner organisations in supporting this objective.

The current plan shows the SEMC confirming the intention to Go Live on 26th April 2018 and making the final Go-Live decision on 8th May 2018.
