WICS sets April retail market consultation

Water regulator WICS will publish a statutory consultation in April on key aspects of policy in the non-household retail market in Scotland.

According to an updated timetable for WICS’ review of the market, which began in September 2018, next month’s consultation will cover customer protection, level playing field, self supply, mergers and acquisitions, ethical business practice and regulation, and the licence application process.

It plans to implement the decisions resulting from the April consultation from 1 October, and in April to implement decisions on the gap site incentive scheme considered in January.
