Launch of public consultation on
Operation Handbook of ENTSO-E Regional Group Continental Europe


On 21 May ENTSO-E launches a public consultation on the revised policies 4
(Coordinated Operational Planning), 5 (Emergency Operations), 6 (Communication Infrastructure)
and 7 (Data Exchanges) of the Operation Handbook of former UCTE, now ENTSO-E’s Regional Group
Continental Europe (RGCE). The consultation closes on 2 July.

The Operation Handbook was originally developed and adopted by the Union for the
Coordination of Transmission of Electricity (UCTE) and its further development and
revision was handed over to ENTSO-E’s RGCE. It is an up-to-date collection of operation
principles and standards for transmission system operators in Europe. The main objective
of the Operation Handbook is to provide support to the technical operation of the ENTSO-E RGCE
interconnected grid, including policies for operational security and special operational
measures in emergency conditions and the framework for data exchanges. The overall aim
of the Operation Handbook is to ensure the interoperability among all TSOs connected
to the synchronous areas. The revised policies 4, 5 ,6 and 7 and the corresponding
appendices 4 and 5 are now published for public consultation. The consultation period
starts on 21 May and interested parties are asked to provide their comments by email
to oh-consultation@entsoe.eu before 2 July.

The purpose of the public consultation according to the
ENTSO-E Consultation Process is
to increase transparency and to provide ENTSO-E, as drafting entity, with valuable input.

Stakeholders are reminded that following the public consultation period, ENTSO-E will
publish all comments received from stakeholders. If a respondent would like ENTSO-E to
treat their contribution with confidentiality then this must be explicitly mentioned
in their submission. After the end of the consultation period, all policies will be
revised and submitted to ENTSO-E RGCE for final approval.

Any questions on the documents should in first instance be directed to:
