Q&As on REMIT – Question III.5.1.

Where can I find a list of organised market places?


In order to facilitate reporting, the Agency has drawn up a list of organised market places which the Agency will keep up to date.

The list will enable market participants to identify relevant organised market places as reporting channels for transaction reporting. It will also facilitate organised market places’ submission of identifying reference data for each wholesale energy product, which the organised market places admit to trading, in order to assist the Agency to comply with its obligation to draw up and maintain a public List of Standard Contracts: https://www.acer-remit.eu/portal/standardised-contract.

For detailed information, please see Article 3(2) of the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1348/2014.

Please note that the list will be made available in exportable format as soon as possible. Meanwhile, please refer to the document available here: https://www.acer-remit.eu/portal/organised-marketplaces.

Q&As on REMIT – Question III.3.1.

Where can I find more information on data reporting under REMIT?


In order to centralise the information on data reporting, the Agency has prepared the REMIT Portal: https://www.acer-remit.eu/portal/home. The REMIT Portal was launched on 8 January 2015 as the central point of entry to the Agency’s REMIT Information System (ARIS) which consists of a number of applications for the use of Market Participants as well as National Regulatory Authorities.

The REMIT Portal allows, for instance, reporting parties to register themselves as Registered Reporting Mechanisms (RRMs). Further, the Agency has made its supporting documentation available on the REMIT Portal, namely the Transaction Reporting User Manual (TRUM), the Manual of Procedures on transaction and fundamental data reporting (MOP), the Requirements for Registered Reporting Mechanisms (RRMs) and a List of organised market places.

Q&As on REMIT – Question III.3.3.

What is the scope of contracts reportable at request of the Agency?


In line with Article 3(1) of the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1348/2014, the Agency can, upon a reasoned request and on an ad hoc basis, ask the market participants to report the following contracts and details of transactions, unless concluded on organised market places:

(i) Intragroup contracts.

(ii) Contracts for the physical delivery of electricity produced by a single production unit with a capacity equal to or less than 10 MW or by production units with a combined capacity equal to or less than 10 MW.

(iii) Contracts for the physical delivery of natural gas produced by a single natural gas production facility with a production capacity equal to or less than 20 MW.

(iv) Contracts for balancing services in electricity and natural gas.

It is important to note that market participants only engaging in transactions in relation to the contracts referred to in points (ii) and (iii) above (contracts for the physical delivery equal to or less than 10MW for electricity and 20 MW for gas) shall not be required to register with the NRA pursuant to Article 9(1) of REMIT.

In relation to all four groups of contracts mentioned above in (i) to (iv), an ACER staff letter issued by the Agency’s Market Monitoring Department provides time-limited no-action relief that it will not request such data until at least 31 December 2016. More details on the relief from reporting is presented in the No-action Relief letter published and accessible here: https://www.acer-remit.eu/portal/acer-staff-letters-doc. However, please note that NRAs may still require this data under their relevant national legislation and, that this is without prejudice to any obligation to register as a market participant and to the Agency’s possibility to request additional information and clarifications from market participants and reporting parties in relation to their reported data pursuant to Article 6(8) of the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1348/2014.
