ABSTRACT
The article reports on a ruling by the European Court of Justice that public authorities within European Union (EU) member states can vary the duration of transitional cooling off periods for gas concessions without breaking EU laws. In an Italian case laying down an EU-wide precedent, judges stressed that these transitional periods could be extended or shortened prior to the "early cessation" of a concession for distributing natural gas. Gas supplier ASM Brescia was involved in the precedent-setting case.
