Notifying a suspicious behaviour: an overview

​​​​​​​​​​​​ACER notifies the National Regulatory Authorities of suspicious behaviour in two main ways:

  • by sharing the screened alerts on a monthly basis, and

  • by sharing an Initial Assessment report, which includes details about the suspicious behaviour by one or more market participants 

The first figure provides a rounded average per quarter (Q4 2017 to Q2 2019) of the:

  • number of alerts triggered (in thousands)

  • number of alerts manually screened (in hundreds)

  • number of alerts shared with NRAs. 

The second figure provides an overview of the number of Initial Assessment reports shared with NRAs (in total per year since 2015).

Looking at the total records reported to ACER since the beginning of data reporting​, the alerts statistics indicate the amount of resources required in order to assess the REMIT data.​
