Supplementary evidence from BBPA

  Here is our response on the issue of further evidence in relation to Brulines:

The Code requires companies to provide a protocol on the use of flow monitoring equipment, where such equipment is installed. Annex A of the industry Framework Code details those matters that should be included in such protocols. We have not been prescriptive about what other evidence might be included since companies themselves will determine what is most appropriate in the circumstances. We would anticipate that such evidence might include the presence of products that are not supplied under the tying agreement, purchase evidence, third party evidence and pump clips/keg caps from non-supplied products. There might also be covert intelligence, for example CCTV, which companies may or may not wish to include in their protocol.
