The COUNCIL REGULATION (EU) 2022/2578 of 22 December 2022 establishes a gas “market correction mechanism to protect Union citizens and the economy against excessively high prices” (MCM Regulation). It enters into force on 1 February 2023 for a period of one year.
The market correction mechanism (MCM) is an instrument designed to limit prices in EU gas markets. It is activated when prices at EU virtual trading points move above certain levels and when these prices are also significantly above the LNG import price.
