Some wiggliness with words here: in an Allowances Transaction one is either delivering Allowances, in which case you are the Seller of a Forward Sale Transaction, the Seller of a Call Option (i.e., you have the obligation to deliver Allowances when called) or the Buyer of a Put Option (i.e., you have the right to deliver Allowances), or you are receiving Allowances, in which case you are the Buyer under a Forward Purchase Transaction, the Buyer of a Call Option (i.e., you have the right to call for Allowances to be delivered to you) or you are the Seller of a Put Option (i.e., you have the obligation to take delivery Allowances when they are put to you).

The EFET Allowances Appendix prefers just Seller and Buyer and doesn’t really use the term “Delivering Party” or “Receiving Party” — except in a completely different context relating to tax, which is sort of stupid, , but the IETA Master Agreement and the ISDA EU Emissions Annex have a bob each way.
