TSOs have to report nominations and allocations of booked capacities. If the Capacity is booked on a virtualized point (comprising two or more physical points), but the nominations and allocations are still made on the physical points (therefore points with different EIC codes than the virtual point where the capacity was booked), how the nominations and allocations shall be reported? Per physical or virtualized point?
Should the TSO aggregate the nominations and allocations for both physical points and report them as nominations and allocations for the virtual point?
It is TSOs position that in order to have a better understanding of how the capacity is used, it is better to aggregate the nominations and allocations and to report them under the EIC code of the virtualized point. This is the approach for data publication on the Transparency Platform of ENTSOG in case of virtualized points.
Nominations and allocation should be reported in a way that fits the specific/national market design. In most cases it is expected that it will be reported per physical point, but if the market design is constructed in a way that virtual points encompass two or more physical points then nominations may be reported per virtual point.

According to Article 9 (2) of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1348/2014, allocation and re-nomination data need to be reported to ACER on the working day following the allocation. This means that these data will be preliminary and not final. However, corrections of allocations are possible within different time periods according to national law. TSOs believe that updates of fundamental data do not have to be reported to ACER.
Does ACER consider it necessary that the TSOs shall send the respective updates of the fundamental data to ARIS?
The fundamental data will be reported on a working day following the end of the gas day. The Agency has been informed that the only updates of fundamental data (nominations) that can occur after reporting on a working day following the end of the gas day are those resulting from a technical failure/error in the TSO system.
Therefore, no updates of fundamental data (nominations) beyond a working day following the end of the gas day (D) are required to be sent to the Agency by the TSOs unless there was a technical failure/error in the TSO system and the data was reported incorrectly to the Agency.
