A forum for high-level coordination

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Network Code Implementation and Monitoring Group (NC IMG) is a forum for high level strategic coordination between the European Commission, the European Union Agen​cy 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).    

The NC IMG oversees the implementation and implementation monitoring of electricity ne​twork 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 Networ​k Codes Functionality Platform (FUNC) is managed by ACER and ENTSOG with the support of the European Commission. The platform allows stakeholders to report cross-border, regional and European issues related to the implementation of gas network codes and guidelines. This cooperation facilitates ACER and ENTSOG to find solutions to the cross-border, regional and European issues identified.    

ACER and ENTSO-E co-organise three European Stakeholder Committ​ees (ESCs), one for each family of electricity codes (market codes, operational codes, and connection codes). 

They complement, rather than replacing, the​ legal obligations to consult and inform stakeholders during the implementation of electricity network codes. ​​​​​​
