  • CBP Implementation Progress Report of 2012 
During the summer of 2012, EASEE-gas conducted a survey of its Members on the implementation of Common Business Practices published by EASEE-gas. A total of 65 responses were received covering 18 European countries. The survey showed that the CBPs on Harmonisation of Units, Nomination and Matching Process, Interconnection Agreements and Constraints have been widely implemented across Europe. There are still challenges facing the implementation of the CBP on Gas Quality Harmonisation. The EASEE-gas Gas Quality Harmonisation Working Group is closely following the discussions within the CEN, the European Committee for Standardisation, on a common gas quality standard. There are mixed responses on the use of Energy Identifier Codes.
