Market Operator Procedures

The following procedures are published in accordance with the System Control Technical Code. All queries are to be directed via email to the Market Operator.

National Meter Identifier (NMI) Allocation

This procedure is now available. The NMI Allocation Procedure has been prepared to specify the key principles to be adopted by the Network Operator for the allocations of NMIs to metering installations in the Northern Territory electricity supply industry and the key principles to be adopted by the Market Operator for the registration of those NMIs. The procedure is effective from 1 January 2017 with a staged transition to full implementation. Initial allocations of NMIs will utilise a one to one relationship between the new NMI and the 'Installation ID' otherwise known as the Unique Meter Identifier (UMI). The one to one relationship is consistent with the NMI procedure in the majority of cases, with the exception of a small number of complex sites. These sites have been identified and will be specifically addressed throughout the transition period. The introduction of data stream suffixes will be delayed until the metering system can accommodate the additional requirements.
