Changes to the REC Registry making it easier to claim large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) and apply for power station accreditation are now live.
As a reminder, you need to ensure that permissions are updated for your account in the REC Registry. Account permissions need to be updated for all users who will be entering generation data in the REC Registry in support of LGC claims. If permissions are not updated, users will be unable to enter generation data and make LGC claims. The update needs to be completed by an account administrator.
If you are the account administrator, you need to log in to your REC Registry account and update the permissions for all users in the account who will be entering generation data. You need to ensure that ‘enter generation data’ is ticked for all relevant users.
