EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Electricity (Standards of Performance) Regulations 2005 (SI 2005/1019).

The definitions of “relevant supplier” and “supply services area” are amended consistent with the removal of condition 3 and Part D from the standard conditions of the electricity supply licence following the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority's supply licence review.
