The System Operation Guideline is one of the network codes/guidelines drafted under the Third Energy Package. In 2015, the European Commission, ACER and ENTSO-E agreed to merge the three operational network codes into a single System Operation Guideline during their preparatory work for Comitology. The new guideline is composed of the former network codes on Operational Planning and Scheduling (NC OPS), Operational Security (NC OS), and Load Frequency Control and Reserve (NC LFCR). On 1 December the European Commission published the version of the Regulation establishing a guideline on electricity transmission system operation that was sent to electricity cross-border committee. The first meeting of the electricity cross-border committee on the System Operation Guideline is scheduled on 11 December 2015.
On 4 May 2016 the Member States gave a favourable opinion on the Draft Regulation establishing a guideline on electricity transmission system operation – the System Operation Guideline.
