Updating account information

The Swedish Energy Agency has an obligation to at least once every three years review whether the information submitted for opening of an account remains complete, up-to-date, accurate and true under Article 25 of Commission regulation (EU) No 389/2013.

According to Article 23 of Commission regulation (EU) No 389/2013, each account shall have at least two authorised account representatives. This review gives the account holder the opportunity to update, add or remove account representatives.


Purpose of the mission

The review is in place to protect and update the information contained in the Union Registry and to avoid fraud.


In November the Swedish Energy Agency sent e-mails to all account representatives included in the review. The Swedish Energy Agency shall receive the documents at the latest 12th of January the following year.

Prerequisites / Conditions
