A 45-day formal comment period for the Project 2016-EPR-01 Enhanced Periodic Review of Personnel Performance, Training, and Qualifications Standard Templates concluded 8 p.m. Eastern, Thursday, February 23, 2017. The drafting team will consider all responses received during the comment period and determine the next steps of the project.
The purpose of this project is to conduct a periodic review of a subset of Personnel Performance, Training, and Qualifications (PER) Reliability Standards. The periodic review comprehensively reviews standards to evaluate, for example, whether the requirements are clear and unambiguous. The periodic review will include background information, along with any associated worksheets or reference documents, to guide a comprehensive review that results in a recommendation that the Reliability Standard should be: (1) reaffirmed as is (i.e., no changes needed); (2) revised (which may include revising or retiring one or more requirements); or (3) withdrawn.
Standard(s) Affected – PER-001-0.2, PER-003-1, PER-004-2
Reliability Coordinators, Transmission Operators and Balancing Authority operating personnel must have sufficient competencies, responsibility and authority to implement real-time actions to ensure the stable and reliable operation of the Bulk Electric System.
