The main processes that the registry manager oversees are:

  • the maintenance and validation of installation control point (ICP) information, both current and historical, via online and batch functions
  • a notification facility that advises all affected participants of changes made to ICP information
  • a delivery mechanism for the switching protocols
  • the provision of ICP look-up facilities to authorised participants, both online and in batch (file) mode
  • the provision of compliance reporting.

Part 11 of the Code details the management of information held by the registry and outlines the process for switching customers between retailers, metering equipment providers and distributors.

Jade Software Corporation (New Zealand) Limited is contracted as the registry manager.
