Gas Advisory Board
The IMO has established an interim Gas Advisory Board (GAB) to advise to the IMO in the development of the initial Rules for the GBB and GSOO.
The GAB is a committee of industry representatives convened by the IMO to advise the IMO in the development of the initial Rules for the GBB and GSOO. The design of the GAB largely reflects that of the IMO’s Market Advisory Committee, which provides advice to the IMO in relation to rule changes, procedure changes and electricity market operation matters in general. The IMO has established the GAB on an interim basis to assist with the development of the initial Rules for the GBB and GSOO.
2013 Annual Review of the Composition of the GAB
The IMO is now formally establishing the GAB under the Gas Services Information Rules.
In accordance with the GAB Constitution, the IMO is required to annually assess the composition of the GAB known as the 'GAB Annual Review Process'. An overview of the process is outlined in the GAB Constitution and Appointment Guidelines.
The Call for Nominations to serve on the 2013 GAB has been published and is provided below for your reference.

GAB Governance Documents
The sole function of the GAB is to develop an initial set of rules for the operation of the GBB and GSOO, after which the IMO will dissolve the GAB. Membership on the GAB therefore continues until the GAB is dissolved (subject to resignation or removal in accordance with the GAB Constitution).
