Status
Nominations are being sought for periodic review team members through 8 p.m. Eastern, Tuesday, May 23, 2017. The Standards Committee is expected to appoint team members July 2017.
Background
The purpose of this project is to conduct a periodic review of Reliability Standard FAC-008-3 Facility Ratings. 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as is (i.e., no changes needed); (2) revised (which may include revising or retiring one or more requirements); or (3) withdrawn.
 
The Periodic Review team will use the grading from the Standing Review Team as an input to their work. If a Periodic Review team recommends changes to a Reliability Standard(s), the Standing Review Team will re-grade and post the revised draft standard(s) for stakeholder comment. The results of the re-graded standard will then accompany the standard recommendation when it is presented to the Board of Trustees for adoption.
