EU Network Codes and Guidelines (NCs & GLs)

The EU Network Codes are sets of rules adopted by the European Union, through the Comitology process, to then be implemented across Member States under the form of EU regulations. When they become law, the Network Codes will have the same status as any other European regulation and will govern all electricity market transactions with a cross-border impact.
