NERC Announces New Enforcement Initiative
 
WASHINGTON, DC – The North American Electric Reliability Corporation announced a new initiative for processing violations of Reliability Standards at its quarterly board meeting in Vancouver. The initiative complements other efforts already underway at NERC.
 
After five years as the electric reliability organization, NERC recognizes that treating all compliance violations with equal weight is not the best way to ensure the reliability of the grid. The new enforcement process is designed to refocus efforts on reliability excellence, eliminate undue regulatory burdens, streamline paperwork requirements, increase caseload processing, and encourage continued timely and thorough self-reporting and mitigation.
