The Regulation on Wholesale Energy Market Integrity and Transparency: REMIT was adopted by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union in 2011 with immediate effect for EU member states.
The goal of REMIT is to increase the transparency and stability of European energy markets. In particular it strives to combat insider trading and market manipulation. The EU authority ACER has been entrusted with overseeing and regulating the energy markets in accordance with REMIT.
OMV GAS uses this platform to give customers and partners important information and additional links in order to assist with upholding the requirements resulting from the REMIT regulation.
In accordance with the Implementing Acts, REMIT Reporting was mandatorily introduced as of October 7, 2015, for Standardised Contracts concluded at an Organised Market Place (OMP) and as of April 7, 2016, for Non-Standardised Contracts for all of the market participants at EU level covered by the REMIT regulation.
