Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general)
French term or phrase: CNR
From a letter regarding the sale of shares of a company.

"Le panel sera proposé par la Direction Générale et approuvé par le **CNR**. Il comprendra une trentaine de sociétés industrielles appartenant au SBF 80 ou au CAC Mid 100 en 2007 ; ne seront conservées pour la mesure que les sociétés du panel 2007 encore présentes dans ces indices en 2011 ou 2012. Les données relatives aux BNPA de ces sociétés seront vérifiées par un expert indépendant. Le **CNR** pourra retirer du panel les sociétés qui auront enregistrées des variations du BNPA manifestement aberrantes sur la période."

Many thanks : )

Maybe "comité de nomination et de rémunération" ?

Le Comité de nomination et de rémunération est un Comité constitué par le Conseil d’administration en son sein, en vue d’assister le Conseil d’administration dans toutes les matières relatives à la nomination et à la rémunération des administrateurs et des membres de la direction.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Stephanie, no, I asked the client for clarification in the end but they said to just leave it as CNR so I'm none the wiser! : )

Compagnie Nationale du Rhone

If this pertains to electricity/power companies, then perhaps it is Compagnie Nationale du Rhone (left untranslated in English as below).

BRUSSELS, April 29 (Reuters) - A unit of French utility company Suez (LYOE.PA) won permission from the European Commission on Tuesday for its purchase of French electrical producer Compagnie Nationale du Rhone (CNR).

Just guessing...

Conseil National de la Réglementation

or "Conseil National de la Régulation", from the context: a panel of companies with a membership vetoed by the CNR. Those firms with "aberrant" year-to-year performance figures being excluded from it. The CNR appears to be a kind of regulatory authority for Mid-cap listed companies.
