The UK Ofgem accepts commitments following a complaint from an Independent Connection’s Provider against anti-competitive conditions of electricity connection services (SP Manweb)

In October 2002, the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) received a complaint from an Independent Connection's Provider (ICP) alleging that SP Manweb, which is wholly owned by Scottish Power UK plc Group, had engaged in anti-competitive behaviour when providing non-contestable electricity connection services. The Gas and Electricity Markets Authority, hereinafter the Authority, was concerned by the delays that ICPs experienced in receiving these services from SP Manweb, which were not experienced by SP Manweb's affiliated connections SP Core. The Authority was concerned that the delays experienced by ICPs undermined their ability to compete in the market for providing non-contestable connections services to SP Manweb's electricity distribution network.
