Status
Final ballots for the standards related to Project 2015-08 Emergency Operations have concluded and the voting results can be accessed via the links below.  The standards will be submitted to the Board of Trustees for adoption and then filed with the appropriate regulatory authorities.

EOP-004-4 - Event Reporting concluded on February 2, 2017.

EOP-005-3 - System Restoration from Blackstart Resources and EOP-006-3 - System Restoration Coordination concluded on January 6, 2017.

EOP-008-2 – Loss of Control Center Functionality concluded on December 9, 2016 

Background
The Emergency Operations Periodic Review Team (Project 2015-02) performed a comprehensive review of a subset of Emergency Operations Standards (EOP-004, EOP-005, EOP-006 and EOP-008) to evaluate, for example, whether the requirements are clear and unambiguous. The Periodic Review included background information, along with any associated worksheets or reference documents, to guide a comprehensive review that resulted in the following recommendations:
 
·         EOP-004-2 – (1) Revise the standard and attachment and (2) retire Requirement R3;
·         EOP-005-2 – Revise the standard;
·         EOP-006-2 – (1) Revise the standard and (2) retire Requirements Parts R1.2, R1.3, and R1.4; and
·         EOP-008-1 – Revise the standard.
 
The four NERC Reliability Standards in the Periodic Review project concerned methodologies for restoring, reporting, and communicating Emergencies.
 
Standards Affected - EOP-004-2 - Event Reporting | EOP-005-2 - System Restoration from Blackstart Resources | EOP-006-2 - System Restoration Coordination | EOP-008-1 - Loss of Control Center Functionality
 
Purpose/Industry Need
Implementation of revisions and retirements recommended by the EOP Standard Drafting Team clarify the critical methodology requirements for Emergency Operations, while ensuring strong planning, reporting, communication and coordination across the Functional Entities. In addition, the revisions are intended to streamline the standards and apply Paragraph 81 criteria, while making the standards more Results-based and addressing the outstanding directive from FERC Order No. 749.
