Reporting information pursuant to Article 3(4)(b) REMIT

Pursuant to Article 3(4)(b) REMIT, the prohibition of insider trading according to Article 3 REMIT does not apply to transactions entered into by electricity and natural gas producers, operators of natural gas storage facilities or operators of LNG import facilities the sole purpose of which is to cover the immediate physical loss resulting from unplanned outages, where not to do so would result in the market participant not being able to meet existing contractual obligations or where such action is undertaken in agreement with the transmission system operator(s) concerned in order to ensure safe and secure operation of the system. In such a situation, the relevant information relating to the transactions must be reported to ACER and the national regulatory authority. This reporting obligation is without prejudice to the obligations set out in Article 4(1) REMIT.

To facilitate reporting for market participants, E-Control and ACER have entered into an agreement according to which reports submitted to ACER are forwarded to E-Control. There is thus no need for double reporting. Reports to ACER can be submitted using the ACER Notification Platform.

Should this notification platform be unavailable, it is also possible to report information by filling in and sending the following form to remit@e-control.at.
