The Competition in Connections (CiC) Code of Practice governs the way in which Distribution Network Operators (DNO) provide input services to facilitate competition in the electricity connections distribution market. It will help customers have more choice over their connection provider.

The CiC Code of Practice was approved by Ofgem in June 2015, following extensive consultation. It includes arrangements to make changes, so that it can evolve over time. This included the establishment of an industry panel to oversee those changes.

Representatives from across the industry sit on the Panel, including DNOs, Independent DNOs (IDNO) and Independent Connection Providers (ICPs). The Panel acts as forum to which modifications can be proposed, that help to better facilitate the relevant objectives of the CiC Code of Practice.
