The Open Market Committee (OMC) is an important meeting point where AIB and its members – the competent bodies for guarantees of origin across Europe – and market participants can develop a better understanding of each other’s needs and wishes.
AIB - "guaranteeing the origin of European energy"
The purpose of the AIB is to develop, use and promote a standardised system: the European Energy Certificate System - "EECS".
EECS is based on structures and procedures which ensure the reliable operation of international certificate schemes. These schemes satisfy the criteria of objectivity, non-discrimination, transparency and costs effectiveness, in order to facilitate the international exchange of guarantees of origin.
In order to further facilitate this, the AIB operates an inter-registry communications Hub.
The AIB also provides a knowledge centre for energy certificate authorities across Europe, providing and sharing advice and guidance.

The European Energy Certificate System
The European Energy Certificate System (EECS) offers a framework for creating and transferring electronic documents (EECS Certificates). For each megawatt-hour of energy, EECS certifies the quality of its source and/or the method of its production.
