The work of DERA and decisionsRight of appeal - status as a partyAs the supervisory authority, the DERA secretariat considers all enquiriesto assess whether there is reason to suspect that mattersconflict with the law. If this is the case, the matter is processed,irrespective of whether or not it is a formal complaint. If there is noreason for suspicion, the matter can be rejected, again irrespectiveof whether or not it is a formal complaint.To have status as party in a case before DERA, in accordance with thePublic Administration Act one must have a significant and individualinterest in the case. This has been confirmed in a number of decisionsmade by DERA on right of appeal, and hearings of parties further tosimilar decisions by the Energy Board of Appeal.In cases concerning general terms and conditions or prices regardingan energy enterprise, all the consumers using the enterprise will usuallyhave the same significant interest in the case. Therefore it will bean exception for a consumer to have an individual interest separatefrom the other consumers using the enterprise, and thus qualify forstatus as party.The same criteria apply for appeals to the Energy Board of Appeal.The basis for administrative processing of cases is therefore that anyonecan have their case assessed by an independent administrativeauthority, but only those with status as party can bring the case forfurther administrative processing.Danish Energy Regulatory Authority · 200827
