    Nor shall a Supplier or their Agent be obligated to exchange data between themselves by way of
    electronic files. This shall not absolve or detract a Supplier from its obligations to comply with
    paragraph 4.3.

5.       Suppliers obligations to ensure efficient operation of the RGMA Baseline Processes

5.1 Suppliers shall use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that they appoint a MAM to act as their
    agent in providing Meter Related Services for the entire period during which they supply gas to a
    Meter installed at a Supply Meter Point.

5.2 Except where a Meter is owned by the Consumer, Suppliers shall use all reasonable endeavours to
    issue appointment requests to their MAM(s) within a timescale sufficient to ensure that they have a
    MAM appointed by the Supply Point Registration Date.

5.3 When a Supplier takes over the supply of gas to a Meter and as a result there is a change in the
    MAM appointed by the New Supplier to provide Meter Related Services to the Meter installed at
    that Supply Meter Point, or where a Supplier becomes aware of a change of MAM, the Supplier
    will use their reasonable endeavours to notify the relevant Gas Transporter (via their Shipper) of
    the appointed MAM within two Working Days following receipt of acceptance of the MAM
    appointment.

5.4 In the event a Supplier receives a valid ONJOB transaction from its MAM notifying it of an Asset
    Installation, Asset Removal or Asset Exchange at a Supply Meter Point, or in the event a Supplier
    receives a valid ONUPD transaction from its MAM notifying it of a change to the Meter details
    recorded at a Supply Meter Point, it shall use its reasonable endeavours to pass such relevant
    notification to the GT (via its Shipper) within six Working Days.

5.5 Asset Installation, Asset Removal and Asset Exchange as referred to in paragraph 5.4, shall be
    deemed to consist of actions undertaken by Suppliers and their MAM(s) in the sequence and
    manner described within RGMA Baseline Processes 1, 2 and 3 respectively.

5.6 Wherever possible, Suppliers should seek to avoid installation or exchange of a new Meter at a
    Supply Meter Point if it has been agreed between the Old Supplier and New Supplier that the
    change of gas supply that took place was erroneous.

6.       MAMs obligations to ensure efficient operation of the RGMA Baseline Processes

6.1 Suppliers must ensure that when they appoint a MAM to provide Meter Related Services the
    MAM is bound to comply with the requirements of paragraphs 6.2, 6.3, and 6.4.

6.2 In the event the Meter installed at a Supply Meter Point is not intended to be replaced during the
    course of a change of gas Supplier at a Supply Meter Point, a MAM must be able to accept and act
    upon a valid ORDET or RNDET transaction sent to them by another MAM by way of an
    electronic file

6.3 In the event the Meter installed at a Supply Meter Point is not intended to be replaced during the
    course of a change of gas Supplier at a Supply Meter Point, a MAM must be able to send ONDET
    and/or RRDET transactions to another MAM by way of an electronic file.

6.4 In the event a MAM receives a valid ORDET transaction from another MAM during the course of
    a change of gas Supplier at a Supply Meter Point, the MAM shall use reasonable endeavours to
    send an ONDET transaction to the other MAM within two Working Days of receipt of the
    ORDET.

6.5 MAMs may exchange data equivalent to that defined as being mandatory within an
    ORDET,ONDET,RRDET and/or RNDET without using electronic files, by mutual agreement.

SPAA Metering Schedule_v1.2 Final                                                           Page 5 of 17
6.6 A change of gas Supplier at a Supply Meter Point, as referred to in paragraphs 6.2, 6.3, and 6.4,
    shall be deemed to consist of actions undertaken by Suppliers and their MAM(s) in the sequence
    and manner described within RGMA Baseline Process 6.


7.       General obligations regarding data quality and data validation under the RGMA
         Baseline

7.1 Where Suppliers receive RGMA Baseline Transactions from their Agents whilst undertaking
    RGMA Baseline Processes they shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that invalid and/or
    inaccurate information, which prevents the relevant RGMA Baseline Process being undertaken, is
    wherever possible identified promptly and communicated back to the Agent.

7.2 In the event Suppliers, Supplier’s Agents or GTs validate RGMA Baseline Transactions they
    receive by way of electronic files, they will be required to identify exceptions within the RGMA
    Baseline Transaction using the response codes set out in Appendix F of the RGMA Appendix
    document.

7.3 Where the GT, MAM, Supplier or the Originator is shown as the owner of a data attribute they are
    responsible for ensuring they hold valid and accurate information in relation to that data attribute.
    To the extent they become aware that information in relation to that data attribute is invalid or
    inaccurate they shall use their reasonable endeavours to send valid and accurate information to
    other parties as provided for in the RGMA Baseline Processes as soon as reasonably practicable.

7.4 Where the GT, MAM, Supplier or the Originator is made aware of valid changes to information
    relating to data attributes for which they are not the owner, they shall update their records
    accordingly and send this updated information to other parties as provided for in the RGMA
    Baseline Processes as soon as reasonably practicable.

7.5 In the event the GT, MAM, Supplier or the Originator has reasonable grounds for assuming the
    information referred to in paragraph 7.4 to be inaccurate, they shall notify the owner of this.

7.6 The extent to which the GT, MAM, Supplier or Originator is the owner of a data attribute as
    referred to in this paragraph 7 is defined in Appendix D.7 of the RGMA Appendix document.

                   b) the Data Set and Attribute Rules in Appendix A.2 of the RGMA Appendix
                       document, or;
                   c) the Data Set and Attribute Optionality for Transaction Types in Appendix B.3 of
                       the RGMA Appendix document, or;
the Market Domain Data Items in Appendix E of the RGMA Appendix document, and valid
information as referred to in this paragraph 7 shall have the opposite meaning.

7.8 Inaccurate information in relation to data attributes and/or datasets as referred to in this paragraph
    7 is valid information but which in itself does not reflect the reality of the situation, and accurate
    information as referred to in this paragraph 7 shall have the opposite meaning.

7.9 Suppliers must ensure that Agents appointed to act on their behalf shall comply with the
    requirements stated in paragraphs 7.2 – 7.5.

  The MAM file is the file Shippers use to convey MAM and GAO details to Large Transporters whilst undertaking RGMA Baseline Process 6 (Change of
Supplier with Change of MAM). Although referenced in the RGMA Baseline and the SPAA Metering Schedule, it is not a RGMA Baseline Transaction and its
format is not subject to SPAA governance. However, Suppliers do have obligations under the SPAA Metering Schedule to ensure their Shippers use and
report on the MAM file as described within this Appendix.

Transaction and its format is not subject to SPAA governance. GTs have no obligations under the SPAA Metering Schedule to ensure they use the MAS file
