Legal - Standard EFET Contracts and Documentation
Changes to EFET Standard Documentation
The EFET Agreements have been drafted as standard form documents. Changes in the text are to be identified in the Election Sheet and not in the body of the document. The advantage of using the standard form EFET Agreements with the Election Sheet is to reduce the time for a party to review the terms of another party's documentation. This benefit is lost if the body of the EFET Agreement is amended or retyped. If any changes are made to the main body of the EFET Agreement by a party these should be highlighted in bold type for the benefit of the other party.
Legal Opinions of the General Agreements on Power and Gas for many European countries are available to EFET members.
Note on EFET List of Notified Planned Maintenance Points
EFET has not previously published and does not in the future intend to publish the list of Notified Planned Maintenance Points ('List of NPMPs'), as referred to under the definition of the Notified Planned Maintenance Point in Annex 1 (Defined Terms) to the EFET General Agreement concerning the Delivery and Acceptance of Natural Gas, Version 2.0 (a) (May 11, 2007) and Version 2.0 (January 6, 2003) ('EFET General Gas Agreements'). Users of the EFET General Gas Agreements are advised to reflect on the non-existence of the List of NPMPs bilaterally.
