IFA Consultation Cover Letter

IFA has amended the document structure for the IFA Access Rules and made changes where applicable to the documents to outline the difference between IFA as the Allocation Platform and IFA as the Interconnector Operator. In addition, IFA has also made changes to reflect the evolving contractual framework whereby some documents will be governed under the Joint Allocation Office PA and some documents will be governed under the Nomination PA. We have endeavoured to minimise the changes required to the IFA Access Rules as a result of the move to SAP/RNP.

NGIC and RTE would like to invite feedback from Market Participants on the above consultation documents.

The latest date for responses to this consultation will be 18.00 CEST on 21 May 2018.

All responses should be titled ‘[IFA Consultation on the proposed Contractual Framework and subsequent Rules documents for IFA’s move to Single Allocation Platform and Regional Nomination Platform]’ and are to be submitted via email to ifa.customerenquiries@nationalgrid.com and marketservices@rte-france.com.
