An important part of Agency’s activities is associated with the implementation of international agreements ratified by our country.

The Agency participates in the work of the Energy Community Regulatory Board (advisory body of the Ministerial Council of the Energy Community with possible executive functions), and in the work of the Electricity, Natural Gas and Social Forums.

The Agency also contributes to the implementation of other international obligations (associated with energy and regional integrations) our country took over as part of the European Partnership and Stabilisation and Accession process.

The Agency is a fully empowered member of the Energy Regulators Regional Association (ERRA), a specialized association of regulators with the aim to improve collaboration, experience exchange, and capacity building of member regulators.
