​​​​​​Related Files

Status
The 10-day final ballot for FAC-008-5 Facility Ratings concluded 8 p.m. Eastern, Thursday, January 28, 2021. ​​The voting results can be accessed via the link below. The standard will be submitted to the Board of Trustees for adoption and then filed with the appropriate regulatory authorities. 

Project Scope
The Standard Authorization Request (SAR) drafting team evaluated NERC Reliability Standards using a risk-based approach to identify potential efficiencies through retirement or modification of Reliability Standard Requirements. The drafting team identified potential candidate requirements that are not essential for reliability, could be simplified or consolidated, and could thereby reduce regulatory obligations and/or compliance burden.

The Project 2018-03 standard drafting team (SDT) proposed retiring Requirement R7 and Requirement R8 of FAC-008-3. Proposed FAC-008-4 was approved by final ballot on May 2, 2019 and adopted by the BOT on May 9, 2019. NERC subsequently filed a Petition with FERC on June 7, 2019 for approval of proposed Reliability Standard FAC-008-4. On September 17, 2020, FERC issued an Order approving the retirement of 19 Reliability Standard requirements and remanded proposed FAC-008-4 for further consideration by NERC.

The Project 2018-3 SDT has been recalled to further consider the proposed retirements of Requirement R7 and Requirement R8 of FAC-008. 

Standard(s) Affected: FAC-008-3

Standards Efficiency Review Retirements (SER-Retirements)

The SER-Retirements standards drafting team is comprised of a mix of team members with Real-time Operations, Long-term Planning, and Operations Planning expertise to evaluate FAC-008 Requirement R7 and Requirement R8 for retirement.
