ENTSO-E previously published a working draft document of this code on 2 November 2011. Based on this draft ENTSO-E initiated several formal bilateral stakeholder meetings and hosted two regional workshops to communicate on the status and content of this code. Member TSOs also actively engaged with stakeholders in national user groups or workshops. The draft network code has been revised based on the outcome of these discussions.
