Participants in the energy markets in Cyprus should register via CERA using the link below:
The system used to register participants in the energy markets in Cyprus is called the Central European Register of Participants in the Energy Markets CEREMP.
CEREMP is an online platform developed by ACER and National Regulatory Authorities for use by energy market participants to meet registration and reporting obligations under the REMIT Regulation.
The Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators in Europe (ACER) has already defined the information that should be submitted for the participants' online registration. The type and type of data required during the registration process are set out in
Annex 1 to the ACER Decision 01/2012
Through the above procedure, CERA has set up a special register of participants for the purpose of implementing the REMIT Regulation, which has the obligation to keep it up to date.
For the purpose of assisting and supporting market participants, the CEREMP Subscription Manual is available.
For further support, please send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org under the title REMIT-CEREMP-CERA- (Name of Market Participant) -Question.
The Implementing Regulation EU 1348/2014 on the reporting of data for the application of Article 8 (2) and (6) of the REMIT Regulation sets out the following:
The reporting obligation provided for in Article 9 (1) of the Regulation shall apply from 7 October 2015.
The reporting obligation provided for in Article 6 (1) of the Regulation, with the exception of the information concerning the conventions referred to in Article 3 (1) (b) of the Rules of Procedure, shall apply from 7 October 2015.
The reporting obligations provided for in Article 8 (1) of the Regulation are in force from 7 October 2015, but not before the central platform on transparency of information under Article 3 (3) of Regulation (EU) No 543/2013 becomes operational.
The reporting obligations provided for in Article 6 (2) and (3), Article 8 (3) and Article 9 (2), 3, 5, 7 and 9 of the Regulation shall apply from 7 April 2016.
The reporting obligation provided for in Article 6 (1) of the Regulation applies to the contracts referred to in Article 3 (1) (b) of the Rule from 7 April 2016.
In order to submit data in accordance with the above timetable, all market participants (according to the REMIT Regulation as 'market participant') who are defined as any person, including transmission system operators, conducting transactions, including the order to negotiate in one or More wholesale energy markets) are required to be registered and acquire a unique identifier issued by the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER).
ACER has created the CEREMP platform for registration of participants, which will work centrally by the organization itself. For the operation of the platform, CERA signed a service agreement with ACER (Service Level Agreement - SLA) as well as a relevant memorandum on access to data submitted by the participants through the platform to ACER (Memorandum of Understanding on the sharing of Information under REMIT). Registration is made by the choice of the relevant national regulatory authority (NRA) in the European Member State in which the participants are established or reside or, if they are not established or resident in the European Union, in a Member State where they are active.
CERA is the National Regulatory Authority (NRA) for Cyprus.

Effective oversight of wholesale energy markets requires the regular monitoring of details of contracts including orders to trade as well as data on capacity and use of facilities for production, storage, consumption or transmission of electricity and natural gas.
As per article 8 (Data Collection) of the Regulation (EU) No. 1227/2011, market participants, or a person or authority listed below on their behalf,
a third party acting on behalf of the market participant;
a trade reporting system;
an organised market, a trade-matching system or other person professionally arranging transactions;
a trade repository registered or recognised under applicable Union legislation on derivative transactions, central counterparties and trade repositories; or
a competent authority which has received that information in accordance with Article 25(3) of Directive 2004/39/EC or the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) when it has received that information in accordance with applicable Union legislation on derivative transactions, central counterparties and trade repositories.
shall provide the Agency with a record of wholesale energy market transactions, including orders to trade.
The information reported shall include:
the precise identification of the wholesale energy products bought and sold,
the price and quantity agreed,
the dates and times of execution,
the parties to the transaction and the beneficiaries of the transaction; and
any other relevant information.
While overall responsibility lies with market participants, once the required information is received from a person or authority listed above, the reporting obligation on the market participant in question shall be considered to be fulfilled.
Market participants should report to the Agency on a regular basis details of wholesale energy contracts both in relation to the supply of electricity and natural gas and for the transportation of those commodities. Contracts for balancing services, contracts between different members of the same group of companies and contracts for the sale of the output of small energy production facilities should be reported to the Agency only at its reasoned request on ad-hoc basis.
Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 1348/2014 of the European Parliament lays down rules for the provision of data to the Agency implementing Article 8(2) and (6) of Regulation (EU) No 1227/2011. It defines the details of reportable wholesale energy products and fundamental data. It also establishes appropriate channels for data reporting including defining timing and regularity of data reports.
The detailed list of reportable contracts could be found in article 3 of the Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 1348/2014 as well as the list of contracts reportable at request of the Agency in Article 4 on the same implementing Regulation.
