On 16 October 2014, the European Commission published its Stress Test Communication (gas supply situation in winter 2014/2015) and — as part of this — an evaluation report on the Gas Security of Supply Regulation (EU) No. 994/2010. This report evaluates the implementation of the Regulation and identifies approaches for revision. In preparation of a possible revision of the Regulation a consultation was launched by the European Commission on 15 January 2015. lt is particularly asked to answer a total of 40 questions being associated with the provisions of the Regulation until 8 April 2015.
DVGW — being a technical and scientific association as already stated in the preamble — will focus only on answering those questions with a technical and/or organizational background. Thus, in the following (cf. chapter 3) please find answers to questions no. 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, 10, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, 24, 27, 28 and 30 which were jointly agreed on within DVGW committees.
