(a) to the effect that (notwithstanding validation under paragraph 1.5) the User considers that there was a Daily Read Error on the Day; and
(b) specifying the volume (the «User Volume Estimate») which the User considers to have been the metered consumption on the Day.
4.8.3 Where a User gives a Daily Read Error Notice:
(a) Transco will, as soon as reasonably practicable and wherever possible within 3 Business Days after such notice, ascertain whether the elements of UK Link referred to in paragraph 4.8.1(e) are functioning correctly, and (if they are) visit and (subject to being given sufficient access) inspect the Daily Read Equipment;
(b) upon or as soon as reasonably practicable after its inspection, Transco will provide to the User a notice stating:
(i) whether in Transco’s judgement the Daily Read Equipment is functioning correctly; and
(ii) where in its judgement the Daily Read Equipment is not functioning
correctly, Transco’s estimate (the «Transco Volume Estimate»), in accordance with paragraph 4.8.4 where applicable, and after taking account of the User Volume Estimate, of what was the metered consumption for the Daily Read Error Day, and the basis for its estimate;
(c) notwithstanding the Daily Read Error Notice and Transco’s notice under paragraph (b), except as provided in paragraph 4.8.8 the volume determined by reference to the Daily Meter Readings will be used to determine the User’s UDQO for the purposes of the Code;
(d) subject to paragraph (c), and unless otherwise agreed, Transco’s statement under paragraph (b) will be final and its estimate will apply for the purposes of paragraph 4.8.10 unless the User gives notice («rejection notice») to Transco within 5 Business Days after Transco’s notice that the User does not accept Transco’s judgement under paragraph (b)(i) or its estimate under paragraph (b)(ii).
4.8.4 Where the Daily Read Equipment is found not to be functioning correctly, and it is not apparent when the equipment started to function incorrectly, unless Transco and the User otherwise agree it shall be assumed (for the purposes of estimating the metered consumption for the Daily Read Error Day) that such equipment started to function incorrectly half way through the period from when the equipment was last inspected by Transco (whether pursuant to this paragraph 4.8 or any annual or other maintenance inspection) to the Day of Transco’s inspection under paragraph 4.8.3(a).
4.8.5 The costs and expenses incurred by Transco in carrying out the inspection pursuant to paragraph 4.8.3(a) shall be borne:
(a) if the amount of the User Volume Estimate differs from the volume determined by reference to the Daily Meter Readings by less than 10%, by the User;
(b) except as provided in paragraph (a), and subject to paragraph (c):
(i) where the User did not give a rejection notice:
(1) by the User where in Transco’s judgement the Daily Read Equipment was functioning correctly, and
(2) otherwise by Transco;
(ii) where the User gave rejection notice, by Transco where it was agreed or the expert determined that the Daily Read Equipment was not functioning correctly and that the metered consumption was closer to the User Volume Estimate than to the Transco Volume Estimate, and otherwise by the User;
(c) if upon such inspection Transco found that the Supply Meter (or convertor) itself is reading erroneously, by Transco (except where Transco is not the owner of the Supply Meter).
4.8.6 Where the User gives a rejection notice, then unless Transco and the User agree otherwise:
(a) there shall be referred to Expert Determination the following questions:
(i) whether the Daily Read Equipment was functioning correctly, unless in Transco’s judgement (under paragraph 4.8.3(b)(i)) it was not; and
(ii) unless the expert determines that the Daily Read Equipment was functioning correctly, what is the best available estimate (in accordance with paragraph 4.8.4 where applicable) of the metered consumption;
(b) the costs of the expert shall (notwithstanding any contrary provision of Section T) be borne by the User where:
(i) the expert determines (under paragraph (a)(i)) that the Daily Read Equipment was functioning correctly, or
(ii) the metered consumption determined (under paragraph (a)(ii)) by the expert was closer to the Transco Volume Estimate than to the User Volume Estimate;
and otherwise by Transco.
4.8.7 Where:
(a) a User has submitted a Daily Read Error Notice in respect of a Day;
(b) the User considers that there was a Daily Read Error in respect of any subsequent Day, up to:
(i) the Day of Transco’s inspection under paragraph 4.8.3(a), or
(ii) (where the Daily Read Equipment is found not to be functioning correctly) the Day of its repair or replacement under paragraph 4.8.11,
then unless Transco agrees otherwise the further provisions of this paragraph 4.8 shall not apply in relation to such subsequent Day unless the User gives a Daily Read Error Notice for such Day, but the giving of such notice shall not require a further inspection pursuant to paragraph 4.8.3.
4.8.8 For the purposes of determining the User’s UDQO, where a User submits a Daily Read Error Notice not later than the Exit Close-out Date in relation to the Daily Read Error Day:
(a) if by the Exit Close-out Date:
(i) Transco has undertaken an inspection under paragraph 4.8.3(a), and
(ii) the User has informed Transco that it accepts the Transco Volume Estimate notified by Transco under paragraph 4.8.3(b);
the value of the Metered Quantity derived from the Transco Volume Estimate shall be substituted for the value of the Metered Quantity derived from the original Daily Meter Readings;
(b) Transco may (before the Exit Close-out Date) by agreement with the User substitute, for the value of the Metered Quantity derived from the original Daily Meter Readings, the value derived from the User Volume Estimate or such other value as Transco and the User shall agree.
4.8.9 Transco may also agree with the User to adjust (for the purposes of determining the User’s UDQOs) the Metered Quantity determined for each Day after the first Daily Read Error Day, until the Day referred to in paragraph 4.8.7(b)(i) or (ii), on a basis reflecting an agreed degree of error.
4.8.10 Except in a case where a substituted or adjusted value of the Metered Quantity was (before the Exit Close-out Date) used pursuant to paragraph 4.8.8 or 4.8.9, upon the estimated metered consumption being agreed or established (pursuant to this paragraph 4.8):
(a) Transco will determine (as nearly as may be) the Metered Quantity («Error Revised Quantity») for the Day on the basis of such metered consumption;
(b) revisions and adjustments will be made in accordance with Sections B1.11, E3.5 and F1.4.
4.8.11 Where it is agreed or determined that the Daily Read Equipment is not functioning correctly, Transco will at its expense as soon as is reasonably practicable (but subject to paragraph 5.2.3) repair or replace the Daily Read Equipment.
4.8.12 For the purposes of paragraph 5 (and notwithstanding paragraph 4.2.3), where a User gives a Daily Read Error Notice:
(a) subject to paragraph (b), where:
(i) in Transco’s judgement (in accordance with paragraph 4.8.3(b)) the Daily Read Equipment is not functioning correctly,
(ii) by agreement between Transco and the User pursuant to paragraph 4.8.8(b) a substituted Metered Quantity has been used, or an estimate of metered consumption, other than the metered consumption derived from the original Daily Meter Readings, has been agreed by Transco and the User for the purposes of paragraph 4.8.10,
the Daily Meter Readings provided in respect of the Daily Read Error Day shall not be Valid Meter Readings;
(b) where the Metered Quantity for any of the next 6 Days following the first Daily Read Error Day has (by agreement between Transco and the User pursuant to paragraph 4.8.9) been adjusted, the Daily Meter Readings provided by Transco for such Days shall be deemed for the purposes of paragraphs 5.2.1 and 5.2.2 to be Valid Meter Readings;
(c) where in Transco’s judgement the Daily Read Equipment is functioning correctly and the User gave a rejection notice:
(i) the Daily Meter Readings for the Daily Read Error Day, and (subject to paragraph (ii)) for subsequent Days, shall be Valid Meter Readings (if otherwise valid in accordance with paragraph 4.2.3);
(ii) where the expert determines that the Daily Read Equipment is not functioning correctly, the Daily Meter Readings provided in respect of each Daily Read Error Day, from the Day on which the expert made known his determination to Transco until such time as Transco has repaired or replaced the Daily Read Equipment in accordance with
paragraph 4.8.11, shall not be Valid Meter Readings.
4.9 Telemetry equipment
4.9.1 By agreement between Transco and the Registered User or the consumer, telemetry equipment may be installed at a Supply Meter instead of such equipment as is described in paragraph 4.1.2.
4.9.2 Subject to any conflicting provisions of a Supply Point Network Exit Agreement, a reference to Daily Read Equipment includes telemetry equipment where installed at a Supply Meter, and this paragraph 4 shall apply (so far as capable of applying, and except as may otherwise be agreed by Transco and the Registered User or consumer) in respect of such telemetry equipment; but paragraph 5 shall not apply in respect of a Supply Meter at which telemetry equipment is installed.
5 PROVISION OF DAILY READ METER READINGS TO USERS10
5.1 General
5.1.1 For the purposes of this paragraph 5:
(a) Subject to paragraphs 5.1.2, 5.1.3 and 5.2.3, for any User a «Performance Relevant Supply Meter» is:
(i) a Relevant Supply Meter which at the date of the Code was subject to the Daily Read Requirement pursuant to Section G1.5.2(a) or (c) or (where the request referred to in Section G1.5.7 was made before 1st January 1996) Section G1.5.2(b), and
(ii) with effect from the date upon which the Supply Meter Point becomes a DM Supply Meter Point, any other Supply Meter at which for the time being Daily Read Equipment is installed and has become operational (in accordance with paragraph 4.1.7),
in either case until such time (if any) at which the Registered User makes an election pursuant to Section G1.5.5 that the Supply Meter cease to be Daily Read;
(b) in relation to a Performance Relevant Supply Meter, Valid Meter Readings (for the start and end of a Day) shall be counted as one Valid Meter Reading;
(c) where a single item of Daily Read Equipment is installed and has become operational (in accordance with paragraph 4.1.7) in connection with more than one Performance Relevant Supply Meter:
(i) Transco will be treated as providing Valid Meter Readings only where it provides a Valid Meter Reading in respect of each such Supply Meter;
(ii) without prejudice to paragraph (i), for all other purposes of this paragraph 5 all of such Supply Meters collectively shall be counted as a single Performance Relevant Supply Meter, and all of the Valid Meter
10 Paragraph 5 will be amended by Modification MR0674 with effect from 12 July 2004. Please refer to the relevant Notice of Future Implementation.
Readings for a Day in respect thereof shall be counted as a single Valid Meter Reading; and accordingly payments made by reference to a Performance Relevant Supply Meter or the number of such Supply Meters shall be made by reference to an item of Daily Read Equipment or the number of such items;
(d) a Performance Relevant Supply Meter will not be treated as one in relation to which Transco did not provide a Valid Meter Reading where Transco was unable to provide a Valid Meter Reading in respect of such Performance Relevant Supply Meter by reason of Force Majeure.
5.1.2 Where:
(a) a User has given a Daily Read Error Notice, or it appears to Transco that the Daily Read Equipment may not be functioning correctly,
(b) Transco has, upon reasonable notice to the User, sought to arrange or gain access (pursuant to paragraph 2.2.2(c)(iii)) at a reasonable time to the relevant premises for the purposes of inspecting, and/or repairing or replacing, the Daily Read Equipment but has been unable to gain access to the relevant premises or to the Daily Read Equipment, and
(c) Transco has promptly notified the Registered User, providing details of the circumstances in which it was unable to arrange or gain access, and requesting that such access be arranged at a reasonable time,
the relevant Supply Meter(s) shall not be a Performance Relevant Supply Meter until such time as Transco has been given such access as it may reasonably require for the purposes of such inspection, repair or replacement.
5.1.3 Where, upon an inspection (pursuant to a Daily Read Error Notice or otherwise) of Daily Read Equipment, Transco finds that the Reed Switch is not functioning correctly, or is the cause of the Daily Read Equipment not functioning correctly:
(a) Transco shall so notify the Registered User as soon as reasonably practicable after its inspection;
(b) Transco will:
(i) take reasonable steps to arrange for a gas meter examiner to attend (so soon as such a person may be available to attend) at the Supply Point Premises, so as to allow the seal on the Supply Meter lawfully to be broken for the purposes of enabling the Reed Switch to be repaired or replaced, and (upon the attendance of such an examiner and provided that appropriate access to the Supply Meter is provided) repair or replace the Reed Switch; and
(ii) not later than one month after its notification to the User under paragraph (a), unless the Reed Switch has already been repaired or replaced, inform the User of the date by which Transco expects that the Reed Switch will be repaired or replaced, and (where such date is later than one month after such inspection) provide reasonable evidence that despite taking reasonable steps Transco has been unable to arrange for
the attendance of a gas meter examiner or (but without prejudice to paragraph (c)) to secure (having given reasonable prior notice of an appointment to a User) the required access to the Supply Meter before such date;
(iii) thereafter inform the User of any change in such expected date, and provide reasonable evidence that any delay has arisen notwithstanding Transco’s compliance with paragraph (i);
(c) the User shall take reasonable steps to make such arrangements with the consumer as may be required for the purposes of paragraph (b)(i);
(d) with effect from the Day of Transco’s inspection, or if later from the 5th Business Day before Transco’s notification to the User under paragraph (a), and until such time as the Reed Switch has been repaired or replaced, the Supply Meter will not be a Performance Relevant Supply Meter; provided that if Transco does not comply with paragraph (b)(ii) the Supply Meter will, with effect from the expiry of the month referred to in that paragraph, become a Performance Relevant Supply Meter.
5.1.4 For the purposes of paragraph 5.1.3, a «Reed Switch» is a component of, and contained within, a Supply Meter, which enables the functioning of Daily Read Equipment.
