Energy Act 2008

Section 86 Power to amend licence conditions etc: transmission systems: supplemental

449.This section makes three supplemental provisions in relation to the modification power conferred by section 84 (Power to amend licence conditions etc: transmission systems). Subsection (1) ensures that any modifications made to a standard licence condition under the new power would not affect the remainder of that standard licence condition.

450.Subsection (2) ensures that where licence modifications are made to standard licence conditions, the Authority must make the same modifications for the purpose of future licences, and also must publish those modifications. Schedule 4 amends sections 33(1) of the Utilities Act 2000 so that any standard conditions which are modified under section 84 (Power to amend licence conditions etc: transmission systems) are incorporated as standard conditions for licences of that type.

451.Subsection (3) is an order making power for the Secretary of State to make consequential amendments to provisions made by or under an Act (including Acts of the Scottish Parliament) as he considers appropriate. Section 105(2) provides that such orders will be subject to the affirmative procedure.
