Since initiating our onboarding and testing processes, TOTSCo has been a hive of activity. We now have over 90 stakeholders onboarded. We have conducted initial tests to ensure stakeholders can send messages and receive the correct responses. During this time, the team have diligently focused on reviewing feedback and swiftly resolving any issues to enhance the testing experience for everyone involved.

Thank you to everyone who has taken part so far, we look forward to welcoming more of you into our testing programme.

On the important and crucial subject of testing, we have now completed our first round of Industry Testing Groups. Between now and the latter part of September we will be working to complete the detailed industry test approach and plans. There is a lot of work to do and tasks the groups need to work through. These include: finalising integration and static testing scenarios (testing that can be done outside of the Hub, offline), defining how CP to CP matching will work, agreeing on data and creating an aligned test plan and delivery timeline.

We do still have some capacity for additional nominations for our medium and small CP/Altnet Groups so please let us know if you would like to be involved by emailing us.

I’m pleased to learn that the efforts we’re making to support your OTS preparation are generating positive results. The feedback on the readiness checklist has been great – please continue sharing your insights. We want to do all we can to support you.

Finally, I wanted to remind those of you who haven’t fed back on the TOTSCo OTS Charging Structure proposal to please come back to us by 11 August. We want to hear all your views.

That’s all from me.

Have a great weekend.

All the best

Paul
