Administrative Sanctions

Consultation Open

In 2016, the Energy Act was passed which gave authority to the CRU to establish Standards of Performance for regulated companies and to administer administrative sanctions against these Standards of Performance to any licence holder who were failing to comply with the requirements.

This paper provides further information on the administrative sanctions; in particular, what they are, what underlying policies will they be enforceable against i.e. the Standards of Performance, and what considerations need to be undertaken before the issuance of an administrative sanction.

The consultation paper on the CRU Approach to Administrative Sanctions and the Specification of Standards of Performance restates the background and context for administrative sanctions and seeks stakeholders views on the CRU’s proposed approach to the development of Standards of Performance , emphasising the need to ensure a high standard of protection for consumers.
