EASEE-gas Working Groups

A structured platform whereby industry participants can discuss the harmonisation and simplification of business processes

The four Working Groups of EASEE-gas were created to take the lead on each aspect related to the development of CBPs: defining business processes, developing messages, developing technology standards. A fourth Working Group was created to follow gas quality-related topics.

2. Message and Workflow Design Working Group
