1.        Background
According to Article 13 of the Access Directive when imposing obligations relating to cost recovery and price controls, NRAs shall take into account the investment made by the operator and allow a reasonable rate of return on adequate capital employed. NRAs typically determine this return by estimating the weighted average cost of capital (referred to as ‘WACC’) of the SMP operator.  The WACC is therefore one element of the price control obligations as it determines the maximum return that SMP operators can earn on the capital they employ to provide the regulated services.
