"(5) The registration required for a booking shall take place in accordance with the general conditions of the operator of the online platform for the allocation of capacity."

2. § 11 reads:

" § 11. (1) The balance sheet group responsible, whose balance group has been assigned the capacity by the network user in accordance with Section 23 (1), is responsible for the nominations and renominings of its balance sheet group.

(2) The group responsible for the balance sheet group nominates the quantities of gas to be transported within the framework of the use of fixed capacity at a booking point until 2:00 p.m. of the day before the delivery date. If no nomination is received by the transmission system operator until that date, zero shall be deemed to be a nominal value. The handling of bundled nominations must be in accordance with the respective accounting rules.

(3) The nominating balance group responsible may replace its original nomination with at least two hours of lead time for the full hour by renominating. Renomination is permitted if it is not 90% of the balance sheet group or exceeds the fixed capacity allocated to the sub-balance sheet account and does not fall below 10% of the allocated fixed capacity. In the case of initial nominations of at least 80 per cent of the balance sheet group or the fixed capacity allocated to the sub-balance sheet account, half of the non-nominated area for the renomination is allowed upwards. In the case of initial nominations of no more than 20 per cent of the balance sheet group or the fixed capacity allocated to the sub-balance sheet account is allowed to be half of the nominated area for the renomination downwards. The permissible renomination is rounded off to a commercial point of kWh. When determining the allowable renomination area of a balance sheet group, day ahead capacities are not taken into account.

(4) The nominations and renomination of the balance-group managers shall be assigned by the transmission system operator first to the fixed and then to the interruptible capacity products. These allocations and the tests referred to in paragraphs 3 and 7 shall be carried out on an hourly basis.

(5) If a renomination of fixed capacity exceeds the permissible range in accordance with paragraph 3, it shall be assumed only in the sum of the capacity booked. The part of the renomination that exceeds the permissible range is to be treated as a nomination of interruptible capacity and, in the event of a bottleneck, to interrupt first.

(6) The network users who have booked an average of less than ten per cent of the annual technical capacity at the point of booking in a river direction during the previous 365 days shall be subject to the restrictions on renomination referred to in paragraphs 3 and 5 of this Regulation. this point of the book and, in this direction of flow, under the following conditions: the balance sheet group or the sub-balance sheet account, the balance sheet or the sub-balance sheet account that are assigned to the capacity of this network user,

1.

shall be allocated less than ten per cent of the annual technical capacity at the relevant point of entry in the river direction concerned; and

2.

shall not be associated with the capacity of a network user to which the condition of the first sentence of this paragraph shall not apply in the same way.

Day-ahead capacities are not taken into account when determining the booked and allocated fixed capacities.

(7) The responsible group responsible for balance sheet groups may establish sub-balance accounts. The nomination or In this case renomination of gas volumes is carried out by the responsible accounting group responsible for the corresponding sub-balance sheet account, the corresponding nomination and renomination rules for balance sheet groups apply analogously.

(8) The nomination must be submitted individually for each flow direction. The nomination of bundled capacity shall be effected by submitting a bundled nomination.

(9) The transmission system operator shall offer the capacity free from the use of the renomination restrictions as provided for in paragraphs 3 and 5 as day-ahead capacities in accordance with § 6 para. 3.

(10) The Day Ahead capacities awarded in accordance with Section 6 (3) shall be nominated by 20.00 for the next day.

(11) Capacities booked in the short term (Day Ahead-, Rest of the Day-and Within Day-capacity) shall be included in balance sheet groups without delay.

(12) The network user, whose capacities have been offered by the transmission system operator pursuant to § 6 para. 3, remains committed to payment of the feed-in or exit charges.

(13) In so far as comparable rules are applied to the limit coupling points of neighbouring network operators, the transmission system operators may, at these interfaces, be subject to the restriction of the renomination rights referred to in paragraphs 3, 5, 6 and Paragraph 8, second sentence, if necessary, in order to allow for a settlement compatible with the neighbouring market area. In particular, the bundling of capacities should not be made more difficult. The deviation shall be notified in advance to the regulatory authority and shall be justified.
