Q&As on REMIT – Question III.2.14.

What will happen if at the time of registration a market participant has not yet decided on the delegated party for reporting on behalf of the market participant (concrete RRM)? Is there any chance not to fill Section 5 of the registration form at the first time of registration but only at a later stage?


Answer:

Yes. It is not necessary to provide information in Section 5 of the registration form if it is not available yet. It can be updated at a later stage.

Q&As on REMIT – Question III.2.10.

What is the role of the RRM Administrator as regards the carrying out of all activities related to the functions of an RRM Administrator? I.e. what should we write in the power of attorney template, thus limiting the power given to the RRM Administrator?


Answer:

The RRM Administrator oversees the RRM registration process and ensures the completion of all necessary steps. After successful registration, this person administers the RRM’s users. This also includes the creation of other RRM Administrators, if the need arises. In such a case, any new RRM Administrators are always subject to ACER approval.

Q&As on REMIT – Question III.2.12.

How can I access the technical documentation as regards RRM registration?


Answer:

In order to access the Technical Specifications for RRMs, you need to initiate the RRM registration process via the REMIT Portal and pass a number of steps in the registration process during the identification phase, as well as electronically sign a Non-Disclosure-Declaration. The RRM registration tool is available here: https://www.acer-remit.eu/portal/rrm-registration-doc.

You can also receive access to the Technical Specifications for RRMs via a client or a customer when applicable under the conditions stipulated in the Non-Disclosure-Declaration.

Q&As on REMIT – Question III.2.5.

We would like to apply for the registration as RRM for standard contracts and maybe later for non-standard contracts as well. Can we start now the registration only as RRM for standard contracts and later extend the registration for non-standard contracts?


Answer:

This is possible. If you decide to report other types of data in the future, you will be required to conduct tests relevant to the corresponding schemas. In addition, ACER may potentially request additional information. However, you will not be obliged to restart your registration process or re-apply for a new RRM status.

Q&As on REMIT – Question III.2.6.

What kind of system should we have in order to do reporting on behalf of customers?


Answer:

ACER has put in place a system that supports three interfaces (WebGUI, Web Services, and SFTP). RRMs have the option to establish connections with one or more of these interfaces. Within the RRM registration process and after signing a non-disclosure declaration, the candidate RRM can access a document that describes all the technical information necessary (namely “Technical Specifications for RRMs”).

Q&As on REMIT – Question III.2.7.

Do we need to have a valid ISO 27001 certificate if we want to register as a third party RRM?


Answer:

There is no requirement to acquire a valid ISO 27001 certificate. Nevertheless, nothing prevents RRMs from doing so. It can be proven useful when demonstrating compliance to the technical and organisational requirements.

Q&As on REMIT – Question III.2.8.

Will both technical compliance checks and content/business compliance checks be done at the time of report submission and will both (technical and content/business) receipts will be available at that time? If not, how long after submission of the report should we expect the content/business receipts to be available?


Answer:

Whenever a file is submitted, it will undergo several rounds of validation.

A first batch of validation is under the name of “technical validation”, this includes:

– name compliance
– decryption & signature validation
– xml validation against xsd schema
– additional validation dependent on the source of submission

A second batch of validation is under the name of “business/content validation”, this includes:

– uniqueness of the data, if required based on the content
– compliance of data
– completeness of data
– application of business rules

The receipt availability instead follow a hierarchical structure, meaning only the highest level of “receipt” will be made available, so:

– if there is no error, the only available receipt for download will be a business/content validation receipt;
– if there is a business/content error, only the business/content validation receipt will be available for download;
– if there is a technical error, only the technical validation receipt will be available for download.

Typically you can expect the receipt to be available within maximum 30-35 minutes in case of large files, although you can expect the process to take less depending on your time of submission (if your system submits data in a peak “time slot”, there might be a queue before handling your data, but this will be a transparent process for the end-user) or your submission size (if for example you submit a small file containing just corrections to a previously submitted file, the elaboration time will be much smaller than a fully-fledged max size submission file).
