Closed 13 Aug 2021

Opened 7 Jul 2021


This consultation concerns the Manual of Procedures (MoP) of the Transparency Platform. The new release (MoP v3r3) includes amendments to the existing documents but also includes new documents related to the publication requirements stemming from the System Operation Guideline (COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2017/1485) and Balancing Implementation Frameworks. These amendments will impact the current data publications and will generate new data publication requirements on the ENTSO-E Transparency Platform from which the users will benefit.
