With effect from 15 October 2016, Nord Pool is changing its Market Conduct Rules.
Until now it has been an obligation for all Nord Pool members to ensure that inside information that is published according to REMIT, is published through Nord Pool’s UMM system.
This requirement has now been clarified to include the Transparency Regulation Article 7, 10 and 15 – though only for information relating to the Nordic and Baltic electricity market. All affected Nord Pool members are already using our UMM system for this purpose, but from 15 October this will be clearly set out in the Market Conduct Rules.
In addition, the specific disclosure requirements for Norway have been updated in order to align them with the requirements set out in the Manual of Procedures on data reporting under REMIT.
The new Market Conduct Rules can be found here, while a version showing specific changes can be viewed here.
