ENTSO-E was formally established and given legal mandates by the EU’s Third Energy Package, which was adopted in July 2009. Although the Third Energy Package did not formally apply until March 2011, ENTSO-E was created in December 2008 and fully operational as of July 2009.
In December 2010, in order to be fully compliant with the obligations under Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 714/2009 regarding the establishment of the Association, ENTSO-E submitted its Articles of Association and Internal Regulations to the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) and the European Commission (EC). Based on the opinions formulated by ACER and the EC, ENTSO-E’s Assembly adapted the documents in June 2011.
The Articles of Association and Internal Regulations were further reviewed and improved in September 2014.
The Articles of Association govern, among others, the operation of ENTSO-E, its membership, the roles and relationships between the various ENTSO-E’s bodies and the distribution of voting rights between the members.
The Internal Regulations complements the Article of Association by defining the practical and technical rules and procedures governing the operations of the Association.
