Regulation (EC) No 715/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on conditions for access to natural gas transmission networks that repeals Regulation (EC) No 1775/2005 serves in particular to determine non-discriminatory rules for provisions governing access to natural gas transmission networks and to create mechanisms to harmonise rules pertaining to network access for cross-border gas trading. Annex I to this regulation contains a catalogue of publication obligations for transmission system operators.

The Regulation (EU) 2017/459 also contains provisions for incremental capacity. On 27 March 2023 the Federal Network Agency has decided in the administrative proceedings with the approval of a fee for activities resulting from the submission of non-binding respect to demand indications for incremental capacity pursuant to section 29(1) of the Energy Industry Act (EnWG) in conjunction with section 56(1) sentence 1 para 2 and sentence 2 EnWG in conjunction with Article 6(11) and Article 7(3) of the Regulation (EC) No 715/2009 in conjunction with Article 26(11) of the Regulation (EU) 2017/459 that the TSO is entitled to impose a fee pursuant to Article 26(11) of the Regulation (EU) 2017/459.
From the incremental capacity cycle 2023 - 2025 onwards, the German transmission system operators will charge a fee of €30,000 per market area border, type of request (incremental capacity or upgrade of existing capacity) and direction (entry or exit capacity) for their activities resulting from the submission of non-binding demand indications in accordance with Article 26 (11) of Regulation (EU) 2017/459 (NC CAM). Please note that the fee will also be charged if the transmission of the non-binding demand indication is not submitted to the applicants by the requesting party directly but by a third party (such as an adjacent, foreign TSO) (cf. point 37 BK9-22/042). The approval by the Federal Network Agency and detailed information can be found in the decision BK9-22/042. Further information:
Regulation (EU) 2017/460 of the commission to determine a network code on harmonised transmission tariff structures for gas ("NC TAR“) contains a network code with provisions for harmonised transmission tariff structures for gas, including application of a reference price methodology, the relating consultations and the publication obligations as well as the calculation of reserve prices for standard capacity products.

Publication of the joint report of the transmission system operators evaluating the use of the market-based instruments and the capacity buy-back in the previous gas year (according to Section 3 lit. b) of the decision).
Publication of the definition of the temperature condition for determining the firm and interruptible shares of temperature-dependent capacity (TDC) as conditionally firm, freely allocable capacity (in German: "bedingt feste, frei zuordenbare Kapazitäten" (bFZK))
The temperature-dependent entry or exit capacities are firm within a defined outdoor temperature range and interruptible outside this defined outdoor temperature.
For temperature-dependent entry capacities the following shall apply:
- Temperature range ≤ 0°C: 100% firm capacity
- Temperature range > 0°C and ≤ 8°C: 57% firm capacity
- Temperature range > 8°C: 0% firm capacity
For temperature-dependent exit capacities the following shall apply:
- Temperature range ≥ 16°C: 100% firm capacity
- Temperature range ≥ 10°C and < 16°C: 22% firm capacity
- Temperature range < 10°C: 0% firm capacity
