New section 12B Modification of conditions of appointment: early effective date

725 This new section allows for proposed modifications to licence conditions to be made sooner than 56 days if Ofwat considers an earlier date is necessary and has undertaken a consultation explaining its intention to do this. Ofwat’s consultation must have explained the proposed earlier effective date, the reasons for the earlier date, and why an earlier date would not have a material negative impact on undertakers.
