33 As 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. RID Reminder
44 How to request a RID To apply for a RID please; Email Ofcom via firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a S18 RID Application Form.email@example.com The subject title of the email should be RID REQUEST Complete the form and return it to the same email 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
55 Strategic 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 time KCI1 to tell you an order has been placed KCI2 to give you the date that the cease/migration will take place Trigger for CP to send out NoT letter to End User KC13 to confirm completion of the order Trigger to stop End User billing These 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.
66 CP 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 email you will need to provide a ‘Primary Contact’ by populating the email address to which BTW should send the cease notifications. We recommend that this is a generic email 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 email address for a ‘Secondary Contact’ should the ‘Primary Contact’ point fail for some reason. Please email the ‘Secondary Contact’ email address to Bev Bytheway-Jackson firstname.lastname@example.org asap. email@example.com
