ENTSOG publishes draft ebXML ebMS/AS4 Usage Profile

The role of ENTSOG (the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas) is to facilitate and enhance cooperation between national gas transmission system operators (TSOs) across Europe.  Ensuring the development of a pan-European gas transmission system in line with European Union energy goals.

The draft Network Code on Interoperability and Data Exchange Rules for European Gas Transmission Networks delivered to the European Commission (EC) on 11 September 2013 specifies that “AS4 shall be used as common data exchange protocol for document based data exchanges”.

A draft usage profile has now been published which defines an ENTSOG AS4 Profile that aims to support cross-enterprise collaboration in the gas sector using secure and
reliable exchange of business documents based on the ebMS3/AS4 standard.

This is done by providing an ENTSOG AS4 ebHandler profile and a usage profile for the AS4 communication protocol that allow actors in the gas sector to deploy ebMS3/AS4 communication platforms in a consistent and interoperable way.
