NC on Gas Balancing of Transmission Networks Harmonization of EU-wide rules on balancing  Goal: to enable network users throughout the EU to manage balancing positions economically efficient and to be able to do it in a non-discriminative manner  EU timeline 2011ACER Framework Guidelines 2012 ENTSOG Network Code Balancing 2013NC approved in comitology process 2014NC expected to be in effect as of October Expected end of implementation period is October 2015
