Question 4.2.13

Question 4.2.13

According to the schema for gas transportation transactions reporting: urn-easee-gas-eu-edigas-remit-gascapacityallocationsdocument-5-1.xsd, the only currency code allowed is EURO.

Please see the document Edig@s Message Implementation Guidelines, schema: Gas Capacity Allocation, element Currency.Code.

Does ACER intend to change this schema/element in order to be able to accept reports for transactions performed in other currencies (valid for UK, and the EU countries outside the monetary union Eurozone)?

Or does the Agency require conversion from the different currencies to EURO? If yes, what are requirements for this conversion?

What exchange rate shall be used?


The Agency, after consulting relevant parties, established procedures, standards and electronic formats based on established industry standards for reporting of information referred to in Articles 6, 8 and 9 of the Implementing Acts. The schemas foreseen for data reporting to the Agency under REMIT were the result of extensive consultations with stakeholders during 2014 and 2015.

This included the accepted values for the currency code in the above-mentioned schema. The Agency further consulted relevant parties on the review of current electronic formats for data reporting in early 2017.
