Ofgem created the CMAG to improve the effective functioning of the CM by enabling changes to the CM Rules i.e. the CM Rules change process, to become more dynamic and adaptive to changing market requirements and technology improvements, whilst also increasing transparency and promoting collaboration between experts and stakeholders.

The CMAG acts in accordance with its Terms of Reference and Operating Procedure, found below.
