NAESB Coordination Efforts
NERC works with the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB) to coordinate the development of business practices and reliability standards for the wholesale electric industry. The members and staff of NERC and NAESB actively participate in both organizations, and NERC is a member of the NAESB Wholesale Electric Quadrant. NAESB representatives participate in NERC technical committees and regularly attend meetings of the Member Representatives Committee and Board of Trustees.
NERC and NAESB use a joint coordination procedure to ensure tight integration of their respective standards development processes where reliability and commercial needs are closely related. Some examples where such coordination has been required are electronic tagging, transmission loading relief procedures, and determination of available transfer capability. This coordination includes joint meetings, inter-organizational reviews of standards and comments, and often jointly developed filings.

NERC NAESB Template Procedure for Joint Standards Development and Coordination

The NERC-NAESB Procedure for Joint Development and Coordination was established in order to guide joint development of standards and business practices when the reliability and business practice components are intricately entwined within a proposed standard. This procedure has been approved for implementation by the Standards Committee, NERC Board of Trustees and the NAESB Board. 

The supplement to the NERC-NAESB Procedure for Joint Standards Development and Coordination and the Supplement to NERC-NAESB Procedure for Joint Standards Development and Coordination is intended to aid the two organizations and their stakeholders in implementing the procedure.
