​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Board of Regulators plays a key role within the Agency, providing opinions and guidance to the Director and addressing the regulatory policy of the Agency. 

Its approval is essential for the appointment of a new Director and for the finalisation of the work programme.​

Composition and Independence

​The Board of Regulators (BoR) consists of senior representatives of the 27 National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs)  for energy in the Member States and one non-voting representative of the European Commission. Each NRA also appoints an alternate representative.

The Board of Regulators must act independently and must not take instructions from any government of a Member State, from the Commission, or from another public or private entity.​

Rules of Procedure

​The Board of Regulators adopts its rules of procedure, regulating the way NRAs cooperate together through ACER. 

Decisions of the BoR are adopted on the basis of a two-thirds majority of the members present (each membe​r has only one vote).​​​
