Staff from National Regulatory Authotities (NRAs) need expertise to carry out monitoring activities of the wholesale energy markets at national level according to REMIT. As part of this, NRA staff need to understand REMIT’s provisions as well as market abuse behaviours, investigation and enforcement procedures, interactions with financial market regulation and anti-trust regulation. This will help facilitate effective cooperation to ensure compatibility and consistency in the application of measures dealing with potential market abuse and their enforcement in energy markets.
 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
 
Our two half days course is designed for specialised experts from National Regulatory Authorities who already have some experience in REMIT implementation and market monitoring but want to enhance their expertise and knowledge in order to carry out the new demanding tasks required under REMIT. The participants who have completed Module 1 of the CEER Series on REMIT Implementation or have 2 years of experience in REMIT Implementation are encouraged to attend.
 
This online course is offered as Module 2 of the Series on REMIT Implementation - Level B: Specialised Course.
