On 7th December 2006 the ERGEG launched a public consultation on Draft Guidelines of Good Practice for Open Season Procedures. Procedures. Open season procedures generally consist of a two-step process starting with an open assessment of market demand for a specific proposal (first step) and a subsequent phase of capacity allocation (second step).
These draft Guidelines were prepared on foot of a request of the European Commission at the 11th Madrid Forum (18-19 May 2006). The guidelines aim at clarifying the role of open season procedures in light of Commission’s draft explanatory notes on Article 5 (1 – 5) as well as Annex 2.1 and 2.2 of Regulation 1775/2005/EC.
