ERGEG has launched on 7th October 2004 a public consultation on the National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) views regarding an appropriate set of guidelines on Good Third Party Access Practice for Storage System Operators (GGPSSO). These are crucial to achieving non-discriminatory third party access to storage facilities and services as required by the second Gas Directive (2003/55/EC).
ERGEG would welcome comments on these proposed "Guidelines for Good TPA Practice for Storage System Operators (GGPSSO)" and the attached "Position Paper on TPA to Storage" from storage operators, storage users and any other interested parties.
In the aim of transparency, ERGEG will publish all responses by placing them on its website - unless they are marked as confidential.
The comments should be received by 12th November 2004 and should be sent to:
