Reliability and Security Guidelines

The NERC Operating Committee (OC), Planning Committee (PC) and Critical Infrastructure Protection Committee (CIPC) develop Reliability (OC and PC) and Security (CIPC) Guidelines, which include the collective experience, expertise and judgment of the industry. The objective of the reliability guidelines is to distribute key practices and information on specific issues critical to promote and maintain a highly reliable and secure bulk power system (BPS). Reliability guidelines are not binding norms or parameters to the level that compliance to NERC’s Reliability Standards is monitored or enforced. Rather, their incorporation into industry practices is strictly voluntary. Reviewing, revising, or developing a program using these practices is highly encouraged. All current, archived, and draft guidelines can be found at the links below.
