Summary: The Northwest Power Pool Reserve Sharing Group respectfully requests clarification as to whether:
 Irrespective of cause, including a single event, simultaneous Contingencies, or non-simultaneous multiple Contingencies.
Purpose/Industry Need: 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.
Appeal:On January 17, 2012 NERC received a Level 1 Appeal for inaction from the ISO/RTO Council's Standards Review Committee on Project 2009-19 - Northwest Power Pool's Reserve Sharing Group's request for an interpretation of BAL-002-0, Requirement R4. The appellants asked for clarity on the following issues:
Did NERC, or the Standards Committee, convene the IDT, after comments were received. What industry and/or NERC personnel made up the IDT?
What accounted for the Standards Committee placing the RFI on hold (in October 2010) and the delay in processing the RFI prior to the Standards Committee 2011 action to place on hold pending Interpretations?'
Do the Standards Committee Agendas correctly indicate that NERC considered the RFI an invalid request, and if so, why?
