Means of redress or appeal

The authority’s taking note of the notification does not constitute a formal act. No specific legal remedy is provided for in respect of the authority’s taking note of such notification. However, failure to file a notification may result in administrative penal proceedings the outcome of which will be an official ruling. Such ruling as well as any other rulings issued in relation to the operation of an electricity network can be appealed by filing a complaint.

An appeal is possible against rulings issued by an authority and shall be filed by the party within a 4 weeks term with the authority that issued the ruling of first instance (against rulings without investigation procedure within a two weeks term). The term starts with the receipt of the written copy of the ruling, in the case of oral pronouncement simultaneously with it.

The appeal shall indicate the ruling it contests, the authority that issued the ruling and contain a motion of appeal with the reasons. No more appeal is admissible if the party expressly waived the right of appeal after receipt or pronouncement of the ruling.

Each ruling contains instructions on the right to appeal and indicates the authority and the deadline for submission of such appeal.
