Organization Registration

All bulk power system owners, operators, and users are required to register with NERC. The process for registration is described in Section 500 and Appendix 5A of the NERC Rules of Procedure. The NERC Compliance Registry (NCR) lists all organizations registered and is therefore subject to compliance with approved Reliability Standards. The current NCR is posted on the NERC website and updated monthly. NERC provides notice of registration or deactivation to all organizations when they are included or removed from the NCR via email and hard copy.

NERC developed a Statement of Compliance Registry Criteria, detailed in Appendix 5B of the NERC Rules of Procedure, that delineates the selection criteria employed by NERC and the Regional Entities to determine fairly and consistently which organizations should be registered as owners, operators, or users of the bulk power system and therefore should be included on the NCR.

Entities with questions regarding organization registration should contact the appropriate Regional Entity or email NERC at
