ELEXON Limited Report and Financial Statements - 31 March 2008
The ELEXON Report and Financial Statements are prepared as required by Company Law and in accordance with Section B6 of the BSC. The maintenance of the ELEXON website is the responsibility of ELEXON. The work carried out by the auditors does not provide assurance on the maintenance and integrity of the website, including controls used to achieve this, and in particular on whether any changes may have occurred to the financial statements since first published. These matters are the responsibility of the directors but no control procedures can provide absolute assurance in this area.

Legislation in the United Kingdom governing the preparation and dissemination of financial statements differs from legislation in other jurisdictions.

Annual BSC Report
The Annual BSC Report is prepared by the BSC Panel and summarises the Panel's and ELEXON's activities in the preceding BSC Year. More information is available in the Quarterly and monthly BSC Panel Reports spanning the year.
