The Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) understands that in order to define reasonable steps to verify the completeness, accuracy and timeliness of the data, as laid down in Article 11(2) third subparagraph of Commission Implementing Regulation 1348/2014, a different level of control/verification should be performed by the big, medium and small size market participants.


ACER suggests that market participants should undertake a periodic verification of data samples at least on a quarterly basis, but at a higher frequency depending on the market participant’s size and/or volume of transactions in the relevant period.


In order to allow market participants to verify the completeness, accuracy and timeliness of the data, RRMs must have a mechanism in place to ensure that market participants can be granted access to the data submitted to ACER.
