Modification 12: Congestion Management Procedures (CMP)

This proposed code modification is required to ensure compliance with EC Regulation 715/2009 (the Regulation), amended by the European Commission Decision of 24 August 2012. CMP is required to address the issue of contractual congestion at Interconnection Points where shippers cannot gain access to capacity notwithstanding the physical availability of such capacity. CMP mechanisms aim to maximise the capacity which is available to shippers and bring unused capacity back to the market to be resold through regular capacity booking procedures.
