The Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/565 published earlier this year provides clarification in relation to Directive 2014/65/EU (MiFID II). The FTR Options allocation on the EWIC (and Moyle) interconnectors will be by Transmission System Operators as per article 8(c) of this (2017/565).
The EWIC and Moyle allocations will be via the JAO platform and will be reported in line with the REMIT and Transparency regulations. JAO have already implemented FTR options on the France-Belgium border.
Specific to REMIT, the clarification on JAO's reporting is as follows:
For the primary allocations JAO will report the TSO information to REMIT. This can be considered to fulfil the Market Participant reporting requirement also – below are the details from REMIT art. 8: “While overall responsibility lies with market participants, once the required information is received from a person or authority listed in points (b) to (f) of paragraph 4, the reporting obligation on the market participant in question shall be considered to be fulfilled.”
For secondary allocations the JAO reporting is only for the TSO side. Market Participants will need to do the relevant REMIT reporting for returns (for resale) and transfers if they avail of these.
