Status
10-day final ballots for the Project 2018-03 Standards Efficiency Review Retirements are open through 8 p.m. Eastern, Thursday, May 2, 2019. The voting results will be posted and announced after the ballots close. If approved, the standards will be submitted to the Board of Trustees for adoption and then filed with the appropriate regulatory authorities. 

Note: Proposed Reliability Standard IRO-002-7 reflects a change of version (during initial posting under this project it was posted as IRO-002-6) due to the addition of a new Variance for the WECC region, developed through the WECC standard development process and was adopted by the WECC Board of Directors on March 6, 2019. Proposed Reliability Standard VAR-001-6 reflects the version update from VAR-001-4.2 (an inactive standard). VAR-001-5 became effective January 1, 2019 due to the WECC variance.

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. Many Reliability Standards have been mandatory and enforceable for 10+ years in North America. The SAR 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.

Each existing and future enforceable Reliability Standard Requirement was assigned to a Standards Efficiency Review (SER) SAR subteam for evaluation based on its associated time horizon. Each SER SAR subteam was composed of individuals that, combined, represented a broad range of experience; including compliance, engineering, operations, planning, and legal. The cross-functional expertise of the subteams allowed for a more comprehensive reviews from multiple viewpoints.

Standards Efficiency Review Retirements (SER-Retirements)
In Phase 1 of the SER project, the SER-Retirements standards drafting team will implement the recommendations in the SAR. 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 each requirement in the body of NERC Reliability Standards for unconditional retirement; i.e., these requirements may be retired without any modifications to other standards or requirements. The observations/rationales for retiring the requirements are currently listed in the project's SAR.
