Section 1600 Data Requests

In accordance with Section 1600 of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (“NERC") Rules of Procedure, NERC may request data or information (“Data Request") that is necessary to meet its obligations under section 215 of the Federal Power Act, as authorized by Section 39.2(d) of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (“FERC" or “Commission") regulations.

Each Section 1600 data request specifies the data to be collected, the registered entity function(s) to which it applies, the criteria for reporting requirements, and how and when the data will be collected.

Under the Performance Analysis program, NERC currently collects data from registered entities that meet reporting requirements for demand response, generation, transmission, protection system operations and geomagnetic disturbances.
