What is it about?
From 14 April 2014 to 12 May 2014 the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) is running a public consultation on the preliminary scoping on potential Framework Guidelines on “Rules for Trading”.
The aim of this public consultation on the scoping exercise is twofold. First, the scoping should identify whether the areas and issues identified are the correct ones (problem identification). Second, market feedback is being sought to enable ACER to decide whether a Framework Guideline on this topic is needed.
The consultation will allow stakeholders to participate in the scoping exercise by answering to the relevant questions of the questionnaire. The deadline for receiving responses is 12th of May 2014, 23:59 CET.
Stakeholders are kindly invited to provide answers to the questions via e-mail to
12 May 2014.
A one-time extension of the deadline is provided. Late answers to the questionnaire can only be taken into account, if submitted
until Monday, 19 May 2014 (cob) at the latest.
Please note that the European Commission is currently also consulting on
the Annual Priority List for 2015.
Unless marked clearly confidential, all responses will be published on ACER’s website.
Respondents wishing to keep their responses confidential should clearly mark the document or parts of it that they wish to remain as such, and justify their request for confidentiality.
