Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 409/2013 requires the SDM and the Network Manager to cooperate. A Cooperative Arrangement between SDM and Network Manager will be established to ensure in particular the alignment and assurance of synergies between the Deployment Programme and Network Manager Plans (NSP, NOP). Furthermore the NM will be consulted in an early phase of DP creation, already before submission of the DP Draft to the Stakeholders’ Consultation Platform. The cooperative arrangement also foresees exchange of useful information in the area of performance measurement and review.
