Status: A recirculation ballot for the interpretation of CIP-007 closed on September 20, 2013. The quorum was reached at 91.64% with an approval of 98.61%. The interpretation is being presented to the NERC Board of Trustees at its November 2013 meeting.
Background:In May 2011, the Standards Committee appointed a standing CIP Interpretation Drafting Team (IDT) for the development of CIP Interpretations. A project team from the CIP IDT has reviewed ITC's request for interpretation and developed this interpretation pursuant to the NERC Guidelines for IDTs. In its first question, ITC asked for clarification on whether each sub-requirement of CIP-007-3, Requirement R5 requires both "technical and procedural controls." In its second question, ITC asked for clarification on whether technical controls in CIP-007-3, Requirement R5.3 mean that each individual Cyber Asset within the Electronic Security Perimeter (ESP) has to automatically enforce each of the three R5.3 sub-parts.
Interpretation Process: In accordance with the Reliability Standards Development Procedure, the interpretation must be posted for a 30-day pre-ballot review, and then balloted. There is no public comment period for an interpretation. Balloting will be conducted following the same method used for balloting standards. If the interpretation is approved by its ballot pool, then the interpretation will be appended to the standard and will become effective when adopted by the NERC Board of Trustees and approved by the applicable regulatory authorities. The interpretation will remain appended to the standard until the standard is revised through the normal standards development process. When the standard is revised, the clarifications provided by the interpretation will be incorporated into the revised standard.
