Statement on FERC’s January Open Meeting Action
WASHINGTON, D.C. NERC appreciates FERC’s acceptance in large part of our five-year performance assessment compliance filings, which affirms the shared commitment of FERC, NERC and the Regional Entities toward assuring the reliability and security of the bulk power system. The order accepts NERC’s proposals regarding the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center, sanction guidelines, registration and certification programs, and reliability guidelines. NERC is committed to the excellent performance of our ERO mandate, including our oversight of the Regional Entities, and is confident we will be able to work with FERC to address any concerns. We will review FERC’s proposal to submit performance assessments on a three-year cycle. We appreciate recognition of the need for balance between the additional compliance burden and the intended benefits for reliability.
