Secretariat submits two Reasoned Requests to Ministerial Council

17 July 2019

On 12 July 2019, two Reasoned Requests were submitted to the Ministerial Council for a decision under Article 91 of the Energy Community Treaty. One case (ECS-6/18) concerns the incomplete transposition and lack of implementation of the provisions of Directive 2001/80/EC on large combustion plants by Kosovo*, while the other (ECS-13/17) addresses the exclusion of interconnection point Horgoš from unrestricted third party access regime and capacity allocation mechanisms by the gas transmission system operator of the Republic of Serbia.

Both cases were submitted after carrying out a preliminary procedure.  The Ministerial Council will take a decision on the alleged breaches of the Energy Community acquis at its meeting on 13 December 2019.
