ICPs and IDNOs must enter into an agreement with WPD when constructing connections and networks which will be connected to our distribution network.

Framework Network Access and Adoption Agreement

We have developed a bilateral agreement which combines both the network access for live LV jointing (and trial HV Operations jointing) together with the network adoption agreement. This FNAA Agreement allows an ICP/IDNO to sign up to one overarching agreement for adoption of assets and live jointing works across all four WPD areas. A Site Specific Schedule sits under the overarching agreement and is put in place for each scheme or project and requires substantially less paper work than the previous Tripartite agreement.

To enter into this agreement with us, or if you have any questions please contact the connection policy team at

Extensions of Contestability

Once an ICP has signed up to the FNAA Agreement, they can choose to participate in further offerings that have been made available with the opening of the Connections Market.

Bilateral Connection Agreement

Where the new connections and network are to be adopted by an IDNO the connection to our distribution network will be covered under a Bilateral Connection Agreement detailing matters such as the connection characteristics and responsibilities.
