ACER and ENTSO-E monitor the
implementation of the RfG
Regulation and HVDC
The purpose of these tasks is
generally twofold. First, the Agency and ENTSO-E monitor the effectiveness in
the implementation in terms of requirements and provisions by TSOs. Second,
once the specific requirements have been implemented, ENTSO-E and the Agency
monitor the effect on the harmonisation of applicable rules to facilitate
market integration, non-discrimination, effective competition and the market’s
Both aspects will be addressed in
different monitoring reports issued by the Agency and ENTSO-E.
The Agency monitors the network
codes’ and guidelines’ implementation by ENTSO-E, as well as their effect on
the harmonisation of applicable rules and reports to the Commission.
The first Implementation Monitoring Report of the Network Code on Demand Connection and of the Network Code on requirements for grid connection of high voltage direct current systems and direct current-connected power park modules was published by the Agency in August 2018. The report covered the implementation status of the specific NC DCC provisions due by mid-2018.
This report included:
regulatory authorities must maintain a register of all derogations they have
granted or refused and provide the Agency with an updated register at least
once every six months. The Agency then conducts a monitoring procedure
concerning granted and revoked derogations.
better perform the monitoring task, the Agency set up the RECORD tool for
recording derogation and
revocation decisions in Grid Connection Codes. RECORD allows regulatory and
other relevant authorities to maintain a register of all national derogations
they have granted or refused and to provide ACER with an updated and
RECORD also serves as a single source of
information to stakeholders wishing to access derogation criteria as defined by
regulatory authorities or the Member States’ relevant authorities or their
decisions on derogations and revocations.
Access to RECORD is public.
Member States' regulatory or other relevant authorities aiming to provide information on the derogation criteria and derogation or revocation decisions have to register first at AEGIS portal. The manual for registered RECORD users is available in the section 'Documents' in the RECORD application menu.

For any problems or questions related to the RECORD application or AEGIS system, please contact the support team: aegis.admin(at)acer.europa.eu
ENTSO-E's monitoring of the implementation of the Regulations covers in particular:
