3RID ReminderAs part of the work that we are doing in relation to Ofcom Consumer Switching we have to introduce mandatory RIDs for BT Wholesale Broadband products.The products impacted are IPstream, Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) and WBMC over IPstream Connect and WBC.The RID is a three-character alphabetic code which is used to identify the 'Gaining CP' (the new party which has entered into a contractual agreement with the end user for provision of services).If you have retailers, you will need a separate RID for each retailer.We are introducing RID and postcode as an optional field in Release AP (14 September) and will be making them mandatory in Release AQ (16 November).If you send us a RID following Release AP, we will validate against it.From 17 November your orders will be rejected if they do not contain a valid RID.
4How to request a RID To apply for a RID please; How to request a RIDTo apply for a RID please;Ofcom via requesting a S18 RID Application Form.The subject title of the should be RID REQUESTComplete the form and return it to the same address. Your request will be processed manually and it could take up to three weeks for the code to be returned.The deadline for applying to Ofcom for a RID, in order to meet with the BT Wholesale mandatory change in Release AQ, is 22 October 2014
5Strategic Notice of Transfer KCI’s We are introducing strategic Notice of Transfer KCI’s in Release AP on 14 September.Today you have to download the notifications via BBCR reports (Lost Migration, Migration Summary or Order Delta reports), the strategic KCI1,2 & 3 will be delivered to you in real timeKCI1 to tell you an order has been placedKCI2 to give you the date that the cease/migration will take placeTrigger for CP to send out NoT letter to End UserKC13 to confirm completion of the orderTrigger to stop End User billingThese new KCIs will be deployed switched off in Release AP due to issues found late in testing. We will notify you of the switch on date as soon as we have it.
6CP Action required for Strategic KCI’s We are introducing a new ‘NoT contact’ role in eCo Plus and you will need to select your preference for how you receive KCIs after 14 September.You can do this yourself via the CP Administrator function on eCo Plus via a drop down menu.If you choose you will need to provide a ‘Primary Contact’ by populating the address to which BTW should send the cease notifications. We recommend that this is a generic address rather than a personal one.We have a regulatory obligation to ensure that we are sending you NoT notifications so as a back-up we will also need an address for a ‘Secondary Contact’ should the ‘Primary Contact’ point fail for some reason.Please the ‘Secondary Contact’ address to Bev Bytheway-Jackson asap.
