Alberto Pototschnig, ACER Director commented that the enlarged scope of the Functionality Platform shows the Agency’s commitment to promote stakeholder engagement in the implementation of Network Codes. We continue to encourage stakeholders to put forward gas Network Code issues, so that the Agency in cooperation with the European Commission and ENTSOG can deal with them in a structured way.’
One of the new features of the functionality platform is the posting of an issue by any relevant party, not only by those directly affected. In addition, any issue regarding a network code and guidelines can be reported, not only implementation issues. Issues which have been addressed previously will be reconsidered if a material change can be shown. A preliminary and indicative assessment of costs and benefits of the proposed solution may also be undertaken.
ACER and ENTSOG would like to invite stakeholders to comment on the new scope of the functionality process before the 30 September 2017. Please navigate to a-two question survey using the following link.
