The Network Code Implementation and Monitoring Group (NC IMG) is a forum for high level strategic coordination between the European Commission, the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER), the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E), and the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG). It holds meetings at least twice a year.
Sixth meeting, 5 April 2019, Brussels
- Informal guidance for the preparatory phases of the network code and guidelines amendment process
Fifth meeting, 2 July 2018, Brussels
Fourth meeting, 8 March 2018, Brussels
Third meeting, 29 November 2017, Brussels
The NC IMG oversees the implementation and implementation monitoring of electricity network codes and gas network codes in the EU. Network codes and guidelines are rules to harmonise technical, operational and market rules governing the EU's electricity grids and gas networks, making an integrated EU internal energy market possible.
Information on implementation and implementation monitoring
The Gas Network Codes Functionality Platform (FUNC) is a platform, managed by ACER and ENTSOG with the Commission's support, where stakeholders can report cross-border, regional and European issues related to the implementation of gas network codes and guidelines. In this way ACER and ENTSOG aim to find solutions to the cross-border, regional and European issues identified.
ACER and ENTSO-E co-organise three European Stakeholder Committees (ESCs), one for each family of electricity codes (market codes, operational codes, and connection codes). They complement rather than replace legal obligations to consult and inform stakeholders during the implementation of electricity network codes.
