EIC Local Issuing Office
Gas Transmission Operator GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. operates a Local Issuing Office which assigns EIC codes to entities operating on the Polish gas market, to entry and exit points which are not interconnectors, market areas, resource objects and locations.
EIC (Energy Identification Coding scheme) codes are used on the European electricity and gas market to identify entities, entry points or exit points, as well as market areas in electronic information interchange.
EIC codes are awarded by the Central Issuing Office, that is ENTSO-E, in cooperation with the Local Issuing Offices operating in the individual countries.
Another Local Issuing Office operating in Poland is managed by the electricity transmission system operator Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne S.A. It assigns codes on the electricity market (contact: www.pse.pl, BiuroKodowEIC@pse.pl).
The Local Issuing Office operated by GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. has received the identification number, 53, which means that all codes assigned by this office start with the number 53. The code assigned for the entity by any Issuing Office (Central or Local) is valid and can be applicable to identify this entity in electronic information exchange on the international electricity and gas market.
