Background: On April 16, 2013, NERC submitted two petitions requesting Commission approval of TOP and IRO standards. One petition addresses three revised TOP Reliability Standards: TOP-001-2 (Transmission Operations), TOP-002-3 (Operations Planning), TOP-003-2 (Operational Reliability Data), and one Protection Systems (PRC) Reliability Standard, PRC-001-2 (System Protection Coordination) (collectively, the “TOP Standards”) to replace the eight currently-effective TOP standards. The second petition addresses four revised IRO Reliability Standards: IRO-001-3 (Responsibilities and Authorities), IRO-002-3 (Analysis Tools), IRO-005-4 (Current Day Operations), and IRO-014-2 (Coordination Among Reliability Coordinators) (collectively, the “IRO Standards”) to replace six currently-effective IRO standards.
On November 21, 2013, the Commission issued a NOPR proposing to remand these TOP and IRO Standards, stating that NERC “has removed critical reliability aspects that are included in the currently-effective standards without adequately addressing these aspects in the proposed standards.” For example, the Commission cites the fact that the proposed TOP Standards do not require Transmission Operators to plan and operate within all System Operating Limits (“SOLs”), which is a requirement in the currently effective standards.

Please note: To avoid the inconvenience for the industry to join 20 ballot pools, we have set up one for the ballots on the standards andone for the non-binding polls. Once the ballot pools close, individual ballots will be created by carrying over the members of the ballot pools. There will be a separate ballot for each of the 9 standards, the definitions, implementation plan and 9 non-binding polls
