Project 2017-02 Modifications to Personnel Performance, Training, and Qualifications Standards

Related Files

Status
A 30-day informal comment period on the Standards Authorization Request for the 2017-02 Modifications to Personnel Performance, Training, and Qualifications Standards project is open through 8 p.m. Eastern, Monday, July 24, 2017.


Background
The Project 2016-EPR-01 PER Team recommends that a clarifying footnote be added to PER-003-1 to ensure that stakeholders (now and in the future) understand (i) the connection between the Standard and the Program Manual; and (ii) that the certifications referenced under PER-003-1 are those under the NERC System Operator Certification Program.

The Project 2016-EPR-01 PER Team recommends that PER-004-2 be retired.

Standard(s) Affected PER-003-1 and PER-004-2

Purpose/Industry Need
A clarifying footnote needs to be added to PER-003-1 Requirement R1, R2 and R3 to ensure that stakeholders (now and in the future) understand (i) the connection between the Standard and the Program Manual; and (ii) that the certifications referenced under PER-003-1 are those under the NERC System Operator Certification Program.

The PER-004-2 standard falls within Paragraph 81 Criterion B7 and should be retired.  All of its requirements are redundant with requirements in other FERC-approved reliability standards that are in effect or soon to be effective.  It is not necessary or efficient to maintain such duplicative requirements.  Specifically, PER-004-2’s requirements are duplicated in standards: 

·         PER-003-1, R1
·         PER-005-2, R2 and R3
·         IRO-002-4, R3 and R4
·         EOP-004-2, R2
·         IRO-008-2, R1, R2, and R4
·         IRO-009-2, R1 – R4
·         IRO-010-2, R1 – R3
·         IRO-014-3, generally
·         IRO-018-1, R1-R3
