Regulatory authority

State of compliance

In the reporting period, long lasting shortcomings by the Energy Agency of the Republic of Serbia (AERS) related to the enforcement of unbundling and certification of network operators or third party gas access have not been overcome. The transposition of electricity and gas Network Codes including regulatory criteria for derogation from the electricity Network Codes, the REMIT Regulation as well as rules for designation of a Nominated Electricity Market Operator are still pending due to lack of competences. This inertia is of constant concern, and contrasts the high level of expert knowledge present in AERS.
