Organization Registration and Organization Certification

Organization Registration

Organization Registration identifies and registers Bulk-Power System users, owners, and operators who are responsible for performing specified reliability functions to which requirements of mandatory NERC Reliability Standards are applicable. Requirements and activities for the Organization Registration Program are embodied in Section 500 (Organization Registration and Certification) and Appendices 5A and 5B of the FERC-approved NERC Rules of Procedure.

Organization Certification

Organization Certification ensures that an entity (i.e., applicant to be an Reliability Coordinator (RC), Balancing Authority (BA), or Transmission Operator (TOP) that is not already performing the function for which it is applying to be certified as) has the tools, processes, training, and procedures to demonstrate their ability to meet the requirements or sub-requirements of all of the Reliability Standards applicable to the functions for which it is applying, thereby demonstrating the ability to become certified and then operational. The decision to certify changes to an already operating and certified Registered Entity is a collaborative decision between the affected Regional Entities and NERC. Requirements and activities for the Organization Certification Program are embodied in Section 500 (Organization Registration and Certification) and Appendices 5A and 5B of the FERC-approved NERC Rules of Procedure.
