GL requires that TSOs of each synchronous area responsible for operating load frequency control and reserves, which for Ireland is EirGrid, and for Northern Ireland is SONI, should develop SAOA and LFCBOA. The SAOA and LFCBOA are contained in two respective documents with text relative to the legal articles. These documents aim at presenting operational rules from Ireland and Northern Ireland according to the pan-EU framework, thereby facilitating greater cross-border cooperation in matters of security and the development of cross-border balancing services in terms of sharing and exchange of reserves.
