I am a market participant. What obligations do I need to fulfil after Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1348/2014 entered into force on 7 January 2015?
Answer: After 7 January 2015, when Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1348/2014 entered into force, market participants and third parties reporting on their behalf have to:
a) within nine months, i.e. by 7 October 2015, report transactions in wholesale energy contracts admitted to trading at organised market places and fundamental data from the ENTSOs central information transparency platforms; and,
b) within fifteen months, i.e. by 7 April 2016, report transactions in the remaining wholesale energy contracts (OTC standard and non-standard supply contracts; transportation contracts) and reportable fundamental data from TSOs, LSOs and SSOs.
Also, please note that market participants entering into transaction which are required to be reported to the Agency in accordance with Article 8(1) of REMIT and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1348/2014 are first obliged to register with the NRA in the Member State in which they are established or resident or, if they are not established or resident in the EU, in a Member State in which they are active. A market participant shall register only with one NRA. A list of all NRAs can be found here: https://www.acer-remit.eu/portal/ceremp.
