EIC Codes

The Board of Directors of Slovenská elektrizačná prenosová sústava, a.s. via its resolution approved assignment of OKTE, a.s. to perform the activity of the Local issuer of EIC identification numbers (EIC codes), with central registration and recording of EIC codes as well as with setting procedure upon determining identification numbers which are being allocated and registered by transmission system operators, direct line operators, and electricity producers pursuant to the ENTSO-E standard.

In regard to this decision SEPS, a.s. shall finish issuance of EIC codes on 26.06.2013, i.e. applications for EIC code allocation delivered to SEPS, a.s. after 26.06.2013 shall be forwarded to OKTE, a.s. for handling.
Identification through EIC code was developed by ETSO (European Transmission System Operators - association of European operators of transmission systems) with the registered seat in Brussels where there is also a central database of codes. The EIC code is specifically designed for the energy sector.
Identification through EIC codes is the first step leading to the implementation of a standard for data exchange on the European electricity market - i.e. ESS. Implementation of the standard will streamline a number of technical activities covered by co-operation between operators of transmission systems and will allow flexible trading within the European area while ensuring clear identification.
