Accredited Entities (AE) was introduced as part of the Wholesale Retail Code by the Open Water Programme. The scheme authorises qualified entities to perform certain activities such as temporary disconnections/reconnections, meter installation and permanent disconnections to non-domestic properties on behalf of the Retailer. This is as an alternative to the Wholesaler carrying out those activities.
