Hi there,

Interested to understand the rationale for change of date format for the metered data from March 2022 onwards.

Prior to then it was DD/MM/YYYY, and after it was YYYY-MM-DD.

Hi Malcolm,

YYYY-MM-DD is the unambiguous, ISO standard. We've done a fair bit of work migrating to a common data platform recently, and as part of that, all of our exported datasets will (or should) now align with this standard.

We receive things in all formats, so I appreciate more than many the inconvenience changing date formats can cause, but going forward, (and where practical, backward), this format should be consistent across EMI datasets.
