P272 is a regulation that mandates all AMR meters with profile classes 05-08 be switched to Half-hourly Metering by April 2017.

The P272 regulation affects organisations in the UK who have electricity meters in profile classes 05-08. By 1st April 2017, all these meters will need to be migrated from NHH (Non-Half-Hourly) to HH (Half-Hourly), enabling the capability to bill on HH consumption data.
Any supply contract renewed any time after 5th November 2015 must be settled using HH consumption within a 45-day period from the contract start date, with all meters being migrated by 1st April 2017.
