ACER publishes updated guidance to facilitate REMIT transaction reporting

What is it about?

Following a six-month consultation with stakeholders and with the objective to contribute to the improvement of REMIT data reporting, ACER published updated REMIT guidance.

It comprises a new version of Annex II of the Transaction Reporting User Manual (TRUM) and of Annex VII of the Manual of Procedures on data reporting, as well as the updated frequently asked questions (FAQs) on transaction reporting and on fundamental data and inside information.

Annex II of TRUM describes several examples of transaction reporting (including orders to trade) related to contracts reportable to ACER, pursuant to the REMIT Implementing Regulation.

More specifically this new publication aims to:

  • ensure consistency with the TRUM (main text) v.4.0 published in June 2020
  • reflect the market design evolution by adding new examples on market coupling
  • include additional examples based on ACER's analysis and the interaction with NRAs and stakeholders.

​Consulted stakeholders include associations of market participants, organised market places, and registered reporting mechanisms.

Access the new version of Annex II of the Transaction Reporting User Manual.

ACER also published ​the updated Annex VII of the Manual of Procedures (MoP) on Data Reporting, describing data fields for inside information and the new electronic formats for reporting. The changes reflect the results of the ACER's Public Consultation on the revision of electronic formats.​

Finally, ACER published the 12th edition of the FAQs on REMIT transaction reporting and the 7th edition of the FAQs on fundamental data and inside information, which include new frequently asked questions to better reflect the continuous evolution of EU markets and facilitate data reporting.

Find the new versions of the FAQ documents on the REMIT Portal.
