The Plenary participants approved the Work plan of the organization, for 2013, and discussed the results of the comparative analysis of the sector development and the evolution of the regulatory frameworks applied in the EaP countries, made by Slovak Pricewaterhouse and Coopers.
As background information: in November 2011, ANRCETI was designated as coordinator of the creation of the EaP regulators Network, and RRT – as deputy coordinator. In September 2012, ANRCETI hosted the inaugural IV reunion of the regulators, organized jointly with the EC, during which a Memorandum of Understanding was signed. The new organization has the important mission to ensure exchange of experience, on regular basis, between EU and EaP regulators in terms of harmonization of the national legal framework to the EU acquis and best practices.
