The European EECS-GO Standard continues to grow

13 October 2014

In a recent Markets Committee meeting the Association of Issuing Bodies reviewed recent changes and additions to the EECS-GO standardized countries and/or AIB membership countries. 

The changes include:

- Federal Belgium, controlling the Brussels capital region, have applied for AIB membership and are undergoing the review process.

- Grexel will no longer be the Finnish registry provider as of the end of 2014. They are to be replaced by a Fingrid registry.

- Greece is tendering for registry software.

- Ireland has appointed Grexel as the new registry software provider.

- Spain is tendering for registry software that is compatible with the EECS hub. The International REC standard will provide a trading platform linked to the national GO until EECS certificates are available.
