SPRK opens consultation on draft interconnection regulations

15 Jan 2021

Latvia’s Public Utilities Commission (Sabiedrisko Pakalpojumu Regulesanas Komisija, SPRK) has initiated a public consultation on new draft rules regarding interconnection. The regulation sets out the requirements, deadlines and information that must be disclosed in a basic interconnection offer. The SPRK notes that the rules include new obligations on the information to be included in the offer, such as the location of interconnection points, the specifications of the equipment used to provide the interconnection and the wholesale services offered, and the procedure for reporting and rectifying faults. Operators that are obliged to publish a basic interconnection offer will be required to make the document available on its website. Providers that have already published a basic interconnection offer will be required to amend the offer in line with the new rules. The regulator is accepting comments on the draft regulations until 17 February.
