The Uniform Network Code (UNC) is the legal and contractual framework for the transport and supply of gas in the gas industry. It has a common set of rules that ensure that competition can take place on an equal footing. It regulates processes such as gas network compensation, network planning and network capacity allocation. The SPAA was created to provide a governance agreement for processes that are not normally covered by existing contracts or agreements, but are nevertheless considered important for the efficient and effective transfer of consumers between suppliers. The agreement provides for a robust mechanism to change the operating rules necessary to allow the flow of gas within the sector. Our decisions regarding the proposed amendments to this agreement are set out below.

The SPAA was created to ensure governance for supplier-supplier procedures that were not normally covered by existing contracts or agreements, but were nevertheless considered important for the effective and efficient transfer of consumers between suppliers. The Smart Energy Code is a multi-stakeholder agreement that sets out the rights and obligations of energy suppliers, grid operators and other relevant parties involved in the final management of Smart Metering in the UK.
The SEC comes into effect as part of the Data and Communications Company (DCC) license, which was set up to manage the intelligent communications infrastructure. The Point of Delivery Administration Agreement (SPAA) defines business-to-business agreements between gas suppliers and carriers in the UK retail market. This is a multi-stakeholder agreement that all domestic gas suppliers and gas carriers must comply with on the basis of their licences.
