Issue of NIROCs to agents

15.—(1) Subject to Article 14(3) and (4), an operator of a generating station with a declared net capacity of 50 kilowatts or less may appoint an agent to receive any NIROC which relates to electricity generated, in whole or in part, by that generating station (“a relevant NIROC”).

(2) Where he does so, he shall notify the Authority in writing of the agent’s name and address.

(3) Once the Authority has received such a notification, it shall issue any relevant NIROC to that agent.

(4) Where the operator or agent wishes to terminate the agent’s appointment, the operator or, as the case may be, agent must give written notice of the intended termination to the Authority.

(5) Where notice is given under paragraph (4) and received by the Authority, the termination shall take effect (subject to paragraph (6)) at the end of the obligation period during which it is given; until the expiration of that obligation period, the Authority shall continue to issue any relevant NIROCs to the agent.

(6) Notwithstanding paragraph (5), after the expiration of that obligation period the Authority shall continue to issue relevant NIROCs to the agent where those NIROCs relate to electricity generated during that obligation period.

(7) Paragraphs (5) and (6) do not apply in any case where the Authority is satisfied, by evidence produced to it, that owing to exceptional circumstances the termination should take effect on a date before the end of the obligation period during which the notice is given; in which case the termination shall take effect on that date.

(8) Where any provision of this Order requires or permits something to be done by, to or in respect of an agent appointed under this Article and the agent’s appointment is terminated before that thing is done, references to that agent (however framed) are to be construed—

(a)where a successor to him has been appointed under this Article, as references to that successor;

(b)in any other case, to the operator of the generating station for whom he acted before his appointment was terminated.
