Background
Project 2015-06 continues the work done by the Project 2012-09 Interconnection Reliability Operations five-year review team. That review resulted in a recommended drafting effort, so a separate drafting team has been tasked with Project 2015-06. The Project 2012-09 IRO Five-Year Review Team reviewed IRO-003-2, IRO-004-2, IRO-005-4, IRO-006-5, IRO-006-East, IRO-008-1, IRO-009-1 and IRO-010-1a. All standards were recommended for revision except IRO-006-5, which was affirmed by the review team. A final set of recommendations and SAR were submitted to the Standards Committee for consideration in October 2013. Since then, Project 2014-03, Revisions to TOP and IRO Standards, recommended retirement of IRO-003-2, IRO-004-2, IRO-005-4, IRO-008-1, and IRO-010-1a, leaving only IRO-006-East and IRO-009-1 in need of revision. IRO-006-EAST and IRO-009 were posted for a final comment and ballot period July 22–31, 2015, with industry approval ratings of 88.23% and 96.84% respectively. The standards were adopted at the Board of Trustees’ August 2015 meeting.

Standard(s) Affected - IRO-006-East, IRO-009-1
  
Purpose/Industry Need
Project 2015-06 is needed to implement the Project 2012-09 five-year review recommendations. Since Project 2012-09 was scoped, a number of initiatives have been implemented to improve the overall quality of the NERC standards, including retirement of unnecessary or redundant requirements under Paragraph 81, consideration of Independent Expert Review Panel recommendations, and implementation of results-based concepts in the standards. Therefore, the Project 2015-06 standard drafting team will consider elements of a periodic review in addition to industry comments as it implements the five-year review team’s recommendations.
