Notice to Participants: Request for Submission of Dispute Management Protocol (DMP) Focal Persons and Alternates

The Dispute Resolution Administrator (DRA) requests ALL Market Participants (Wholesale and Retail) to submit or update, as applicable, your respective Dispute Management Protocol (DMP) Focal Persons and Alternates, as required per Section 8.3 and Section 2, Annex A of the Dispute Resolution Market Manual (DRMM).

The DMP Focal Person is the first point of contact for the notification of disputes relating to WESM disputes. It is recommended that he/she must be familiar with and has understanding of the dispute resolution processes in the WESM Rules. The Focal Person shall also have a high level of authority for the resolution of disputes or has a quick and easy access to people with requisite level of authority to ensure that all agreements reached during the negotiation are binding to all concerned parties.

Please take note of the following: 

  1. If you have already previously submitted your DMP Focal Persons and we fail to receive an update from you within the timeline below, we will retain the information we have on file.
  2. If you have not yet submitted and we fail to receive from you your DMP Focal Persons within the timeline below, your company’s Main Contact, as provided in your WESM Contact Information Sheet, will be designated by default as your DMP Focal Person. 

Kindly accomplish the attached template with signature and submit it through courier on or before 20 August 2020 to this address:

Dispute Resolution Administrator

Philippine Electricity Market Corporation
18/F, Robinsons Equitable Tower 
ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City

Due to possible restrictions to mail or courier services during this time of pandemic, you may send the scanned copy of the accomplished template via email at legal@wesm.ph. However, we would still require you to send the originally signed hardcopy to the PEMC office at the address stated above, once the restrictions brought about by the community quarantine have been lifted.

Thank you very much for your usual cooperation.
