TSOC is authorized to issue both international and local EIC Code, as defined in the EIC Reference Manual found at the website here.

The EIC scheme
- The EIC is only a coding scheme and it is not a right or authorization to trade energy.
- The EIC scheme is widely used in the Electronic Document Interchange, as well as EU Regulations for transparency and integrity of Energy Market (EC 543/2013, EC1227/2011 etc.)
EIC code types
Over and above Market Participants (Parties – object type “X”), the EIC also covers other entities by allocating a unique code to the following object types:
- Measuring Points – object type “Z”, Energy Metering points
- Resource objects – object type “W”, such as Production plants, consumption units, etc.
- Location – object type “V”, Physical or logical place where a market participant or IT system is located
- Tie-lines – object type “T”, lines, busbar-couples, transformers, etc.
- Substations – object type “A”
