When customers have a choice, competing providers are naturally driven to deliver a better service. We continue to work with Ofgem and ICPs to identify and implement further scope of works that can be opened up to competition.
If you have the appropriate NERS accreditation and have been engaged by a
client to deliver their new connections, we can provide you with the necessary
non-contestable services. If you would like to find out more about gaining the necessary accreditation to compete for new connections work, please visit the Lloyds Register Website. Our simple diagram illustrates the high
level process for opening
up the connections market.

ICPs/IDNOs own Distribution Safety Rules (DSRs)/Operational Safety Rules (OSRs) are to be sent to the following email address for review: DistributionSafetyRules@sse.com.
A requirement of the Competition in
Connections Code of Practice is that DNOs report annually to demonstrate its
compliance with the Code of Practice as required by Standard Licence
