A common terminology for the roles used in the gas sector in Europe
The Harmonised Gas Role Model provides a common terminology for the roles that are used in the gas sector in Europe with the aim being to facilitate the dialogue between market participants from different European countries.
The generic roles were selected based on existing descriptions of business processes in the European gas market. European regulations and common aspects of national regulations were also considered.
The document focuses on the information exchange between the different market participants in the gas industry. However, the document does not consider legal matters such as contractual relations.
The Gas Role Model was developed by EASEE-gas in cooperation with other associations and is a living document. Any evolution or change in the described processes could lead to an update of the Role Model.
