State of compliance

With the completion of annual, monthly and price statistics, Moldova has achieved major progress towards compliance with all key obligations of the statistical acquis. Coverage of the entire national territory still poses the main challenge for the official statistics.

  • Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on Energy Statistics

    Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on Energy Statistics

    Since 2012, NBS has been preparing annual statistical data in line with the unified format of IEA/EUROSTAT in time series from 1990. Energy balances are published on NBS’s website. Annual questionnaires are communicated timely to the IEA and EUROSTAT and published on their respective databases. However, information on Transnistria territory are not reported in a consistent manner which lead to EUROSTAT marked data submitted by NBS as “provisional”.

    Based on the results of the survey on energy consumption in households conducted by NBS, disaggregated data on energy consumption in households, in accordance with Regulation (EU) 431/2014 amending Regulation (EC) 1099/2008, are compiled and transmitted to EUROSTAT. In addition, Moldova submitted questionnaire in the format defined by EUROSTAT for monitoring the achieved share of renewable energy towards the RES target.

    NBS is producing annual data in compliance with the acquis, save for the concerns on completeness.

    The reporting scheme for monthly data has been established in Moldova and NBS publishes monthly data sets for coal, oil and petroleum products, natural gas and electricity. Monthly collections are not transmitted to the EUROSTAT database yet.

    NBS has been compiling Joint Organisations Data Initiative (JODI) oil and gas questionnaires starting with January 2015 and submitting them to the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD). The information is available in the global JODI database from 2016.

    Moldova has ensured compliance with its acquis obligations as regards monthly statistics defined in the General Policy Guideline on Implementation of Certain Deadlines of the Oil Stocks Directive in the Energy Community and Annex C of the Regulation (EC) 1099/2008. It has yet to ensure transmission of the data to EUROSTAT.

  • Regulation (EU) 2016/1952

    Regulation (EU) 2016/1952 on European statistics on natural gas and electricity prices

    NBS has established a methodology and a reporting system to collect electricity and gas prices. Regular surveying of electricity and gas prices charged to end users was initiated in 2015.

    The dissemination of these data started in August 2015 when the first collection of prices for the first semester of 2015 was published on NBS’s website. The price statistics include biannual gas and electricity price data per consumption band and disaggregated electricity prices for industrial end-users and households, broken down per price components.

    The price data are submitted to EUROSTAT. In this respect, Moldova has achieved full compliance with the acquis on price statistics.
