ABSTRACT
The article reports that the energy regulator Office of Gas and Electricity Markets of Great Britain has proposed changing suppliers' licenses to make it more difficult for them to object when non-domestic customers switch. The move follows earlier concern that British Gas had distorted the process by applying pressure on prospective switchers and offering them better terms. The proposals would prevent suppliers, once notified that a customer was switching, from selling them a new contract and then using the objection window to block the transfer.
