Its tasks include the admission of Members; the appointment of the Management Board, the General Director and Business Area Directors; the establishment of working and regional groups; and the adoption of ENTSOG deliverables.
The internal ENTSOG business areas are divided into four areas: Market, System Development, System Operation and Strategy, Policy and Communication. These areas deal with the many activities with which ENTSOG are tasked - the development and implementation of network codes and guidelines, activities associated with scenario building and future gas infrastructure planning, cooperation for security of supply and providing transparency and technical cooperation, and the identification of strategic aspects and policy monitoring. The management team has five support groups which provide compliance, financial and other services across the association. These are Legal, Financial, HR, IT and Research, and Administration.
ENTSOG's management team provides supports to complete fulfilment of ENTSOG tasks and deliverables and is responsible for direct, continuous interaction with the European institutions, ACER and European stakeholders.
