A NEDU General Meeting of Members was held on 29 September. Many new documents were approved during this meeting. They will be placed on mijnNEDU once they become final. Here is an overview.
The NEDU General Meeting of Members has approved a transition product, namely the Fall-back plan. This describes the normal window for the deployment Go live on 19 March 2022 as well as the role of the Steering Committee Releases NEDU (SR NEDU). The SR NEDU is entitled to extend the window until 18:00 on Sunday 20 March 2022. If the exit criteria have not been met at that moment in time, decision-making will take place in the NEDU General Meeting of Members.
The final version of the document will be available on mijnNEDU: ‘Release’, ‘TR2021-tranche 1 A2.0’, ‘Transitie’.
An important ‘Dual Phase’ memorandum was also approved concerning process-related arrangements during the dual phase of Theme release 2021 – Tranche 1 Allocatie 2.0. The dual phase will start immediately after the big bang Go live for this release on 19 March 2022. The ‘Dual Phase’ memorandum can be found on mijnNEDU: ‘Release’, ‘TR2021-tranche 1 A2.0’, ‘Transitie’.
The Lead group Tests (formerly the Functional Acceptance Tests, FAT) and User Acceptance Tests (GAT) are aimed at preparing for the go live in March 2022. The Detailed Testing Plan GAT was approved during the NEDU General Meeting of Members, while the Detailed Testing Plan Lead group was considered for information purposes. The detailed testing plans will be available on mijnNEDU: ‘Release’, ‘TR2021-tranche 1 A2.0’, ‘Testen’.
The main service descriptions have been translated for foreign parties (mostly balance responsible parties (BRP’s) and metering responsible parties (MRP’s)) that do not have a Dutch-speaking project manager. As far as programme Allocatie 2.0 is concerned, service messages that are essential for BRP’s will be translated into English. This will always take place a short while after the Dutch versions have been approved by the NEDU General Meeting of Members. The translation is an extra service for the market. The Dutch version will always be prioritised during disputes. No rights can be derived from the English version.
The English service descriptions can be found on mijnNEDU: ‘Release’, ‘TR2021-tranche 1 A2.0’, ‘Berichtdefinities & Business Services’.
