Description of Services Provided
This initial phase related to a high level review of all the codes in respect of their applicability to the Distribution System and more detailed assessment and mapping of the Requirements for Generators (RfG) and the Demand Connection Code (DCC).  This involved the preparation of briefing and presentational material in respect of the drafting options for integration of the EU Codes into the GB documentation.
