The technical Secretariat, headed by the Chief Executive Officer, is responsible for the day-to-day management of the affairs of the ECB and the provision of sound technical advice to the Board on matters relating to the statutory functions of the ECB (licensing, tariffs, quality of supply, dispute resolution, industry restructuring, etc).
The Technical Secretariat has a complement of 18 full time employees. Due to the specific nature of the institution as the electricity industry regulator the bias of the staffing profile is towards engineers and other professionals.
