​The Network Code on Emergency and Restoration (NC ER) provides the rules and standards for safeguarding a good level of operational security, preventing the propagation or deterioration of an incident to avoid a blackout, as well as allowing for an efficient and rapid restoration of the electricity system. The NC ER entered into force on 14 September 2017.

The NC ER's development was closely coordinated among ENTSO-E, ACER and the stakeholders.

As the NC ER does not foresee approvals by more than one regulatory authority, ACER will not be called upon to adopt decisions when regulatory authorities cannot agree on terms, conditions and methodologies. ​
