Rules and Legislation

​​National Legislation

According to Article 73 of the Law Regulating the Elect​ricity Market of 2003 to 2012, L.122(I)/2003, the Transmission System Operator prepared technical rules, which define the operation of the Transmission System and specify the functional processes and principles governing the relation between the Transmi​ssion System Operator and all other Users of the Transmission System, i.e. the Producers, the Suppliers, the Distribution System Operator (EAC) and the Customers connected to the Transmission System.

The Transmission and Distribution Rules are designed to ​achieve the development, the maintenance and the operation of an efficient, coordinated and economically viable Transmission System whilst facilitating competition in generation and supply of electricity.

The Rules:

·         govern the technical requirements and constraints that will apply wherever license holders wish to connect to the transmission system and/or distribution system or use the transmission system or distribution system for the transportation of electricity

·         ensure that the technical conditions that apply to license holders who wish to connect to or use the transmission system or distribution system do not result in them being subject to undue discrimination

·         foster efficiency, reliability, and economy in the use and development of the transmission system and the distribution system

The final document includes the Distribution Rules, which are prepared by the Distribution System Operator. The Rules are applied after receiving the approval of the Cyprus Energy Regulatory Authority (CERA).
