Natural Gas Directive

Directive 2009/73/EC concerning common rules for the internal market in natural gas addresses, among other topics, unbundling of energy supply and generation from transmission. It also promotes non-discriminatory network access and aims to strengthen the independence of regulators.

This act has been changed. Current consolidated version: 23/05/2019.

In November 2017, the Commission adopted a legislative proposal for a targeted revision of the 2009 Natural Gas Directive COM (2017/0660 final), which resulted in Directive (EU) 2019/692 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 April 2019 amending Directive 2009/73/EC concerning common rules for the internal market in natural gas.

The Commission’s 2021 work programme foresees a legislative revision of the third energy package for gas, including changes to Directive 2009/73/EC concerning common rules for the internal market in natural gas. The legislative proposal is foreseen for adoption in Q4 2021.
