What is the purpose of the Committee?

The Panel will establish the Trading Disputes Committee (TDC), in accordance with Schedule 9 of the MAC. The TDC is a Committee of the Panel and its authority is assigned as such. The purpose of the TDC is to determine the outcomes of Trading Disputes. It may also recommend changes to the market codes which support procedures to resolve Trading Disputes. Trading Disputes Committee members are obliged to act impartially.

Decisions of the TDC

The TDC will base its decision of a Trading Dispute on the issue raised, the information provided to it and the relevant provisions of the Code.

 Where such a decision involves the action(s) of an exiting Undertaker and/or an acquiring Licensee, the Trading Disputes Committee will assume the total transfer of responsibilities and liabilities to the acquiring Licensee. If a transfer scheme has been applied under The Water and Sewerage Undertakers (Exit from Non-household Retail Market) Regulations 2016 that varies this transfer of responsibility, then Trading Parties should provide evidence of these variations to the TDC to be taken into consideration.

Who makes up the committee?

The TDC will consist of 10 Members with relevant water and sewerage industry experience, as set out in Section 2.3 (Schedule 9) of the Market Arrangements Code (MAC). The members are:

  • Elsa Wye – Chair
  • Julian Tranter – Wholesaler (Thames Water)
  • Martin Mavin – Wholesaler (Northumbrian Water)
  • Paul Stelfox – Wholesaler (United Utilities)
