The Office for Regulation of Network Industries (ÚRSO) will start to monitor quality standards in electricity, gas, heat and water distribution, and also introduce penalties, ÚRSO chairman Jozef Holjenčík said on December 18.

"Consumers should monitor the situation closely and demand quality energy distribution," Holjenčík explained.

Quality standards also serve to enhance the security of energy supplies, he added.

As of 2009, ÚRSO can fine any distributors that it believes aren’t complying with quality standards. Moreover, in 2010, aggrieved consumers will be eligible to receive low-priced supply or financial compensation. TASR
