Proposed Revisions to Rules of Procedure – The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is proposing changes to its Rules of Procedure Section 300, Section 500, Appendix 2, Appendix 3D, Appendix 5A, and Appendix 5B, as part of the Risk-Based Registration Initiative.
NERC requests comments on the proposed revisions to the NERC Rules of Procedure. The 45-day comment period begins Tuesday, August 26, 2014 and ends Friday, October 10, 2014.
A redlined version of Sections 302.1 & 501.1.6 and Appendices 2, 3D, 5A & 5B showing the proposed additions, deletions and revisions, is now available at: NERC Rules of Procedure. In addition, the posting includes a separate document that provides a detailed summary of the proposed revisions at: Summary.
Comments are due October 10, 2014, and must be submitted electronically to ROPcomments@nerc.net. NERC intends to submit these changes to the NERC Board of Trustees for approval at its November 13, 2014 meeting. Comments on the Risk-Based Registration -- Phase 1 - Enhanced Draft Design Framework and Implementation Plan also are welcome and are due on October 10, 2014. Although the comment period does not close until Friday, October 10, 2014, commenters are respectfully requested to submit their comments sooner than October 10, 2014, if possible, in order to provide additional time for NERC staff and the Regional Entities to consider them.
In addition to the design framework, the technical review findings are posted in the document entitled, Risk-Based Registration Technical Justification. This document will be updated as additional technical studies are completed. Additional information will be available on the Risk-Based Initiative project page located at: http://www.nerc.com/pa/comp/CAC/Pages/Risk-Based%20Registration.aspx. The final report will be included in the materials for the November Board meeting.
