State of compliance

To fully comply with the statistics acquis, Serbia must implement the reporting requirements in terms of monthly data collections in oil and gas.

  • Regulation (EC) 1099/2008

    Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on Energy Statistics

    SORS collects, compiles and disseminates annual energy statistics comprising supply, transformation and consumption of solid fuels, gas, oil, oil derivatives, electricity, heat and renewable energy. The data are collected from regular annual surveys from companies operating in the energy sector, including traders, administrative sources and surveys in industry, transport and construction.

    Data is available on the website of SORS and in the form of five questionnaires communicated to IEA and EUROSTAT. Annual energy statistics are published by EUROSTAT.

    Disaggregated data on energy consumption in households, as defined by Regulation (EU) 431/2014 amending Regulation (EC) 1099/2008, are compiled and transmitted to EUROSTAT in due time. In addition, Serbia submitted questionnaire in the format defined by EUROSTAT for monitoring the achieved share of renewable energy towards the RES target.

    The acquis related to annual statistics is implemented.

    SORS is responsible for disseminating monthly data. The monthly electricity, coal and natural gas data are collected and transmitted to EUROSTAT. Although SORS was expected to complete implementation of Annex C of Regulation (EC) 1099/2008, monthly oil data are still not transmitted in line with the acquis. Short-term monthly collections on natural gas, oil and electricity are yet to be provided.

    Failing to collect and submit to EUROSTAT its monthly oil statistics, Serbia does not comply with Annex C and Annex D of Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 as well as with the General Policy Guideline on Roadmap on Implementation of Certain Deadlines of Council Directive 2009/119/EC in the Energy Community.

    SORS currently produces quality reports for statistical surveys when required by EUROSTAT. However, the quality reports for statistical surveys in the energy sector in the format defined by EUROSTAT has not been transmitted and published as requested. 


  • Regulation (EU) 2016/1952

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

    SORS is responsible for price statistics.

    Questionnaires for collection of gas and electricity prices charged to industry and households were developed in accordance with EUROSTAT methodology. Prices of electricity and gas for industry and households per consumption band and the price breakdown per component and level of taxation are submitted to EUROSTAT.

    Price system reporting is established in accordance with the acquis.
