Monitoring: informing the Agency's implementation monitoring in accordance with its founding Regulation (art. 9).  

Cooperation: enabling the Agency to monitor the procedure of granting derogations with the cooperation of regulatory authorities or relevant authorities of the Member State in accordance with the above mentioned network codes.
