Consultation on changes to the Domestic Marketing Code of Practice


Consultation opened on . Closing date at 16:00.


Today we publish our consultation paper on proposed changes to the Marketing Code of Practice for domestic customers in Northern Ireland.

Today we are publishing a consultation paper to seek stakeholder views on our proposal to now allow suppliers to use annual bill or annual cost quotations with consumers in the domestic Marketing Code of Practice for energy suppliers.

A number of stakeholders have previously expressed the view that this aspect of the domestic code should be reviewed. As the market has evolved since 2014 and competition has developed significantly, we are now seeking responses to the questions set out in this paper to inform the overall review of this matter.

We are not proposing to make any changes to the Marketing Code for small business customers at this time.
