State of compliance

As Moldova did not transpose Regulation (EU) 347/2013 to date and failed to establish a single competent national authority, it is not compliant with the acquis in this respect. The Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure, with the Secretariat’s assistance, is currently finalizing amendments to the Energy Law, which will ensure transposition and implementation of Regulation (EU) 347/2013, as adapted and adopted by the Energy Community.
