Purpose /Industry Need:
This project is in response to paragraph 81 of FERC’s March 15, 2012 Order issued on NERC’s Find, Fix and Track process. The purpose of the project is to retire or modify FERC-approved Reliability Standard requirements that as FERC noted, "provide little protection to the reliable operations of the BES", are redundant or unnecessary, or to retire or modify a FERC-approved Reliability Standard requirement to increase the efficiency of the ERO’s compliance programs. Phase 1 of the project identifies Reliability Standard requirements that clearly meet the criteria set forth in the SAR and do not require extensive technical research. Subsequent phases will address Reliability Standard requirements that need additional technical research before retirement or modification.
