Statement on FERC March Open Meeting Action

WASHINGTON, D.C. – At its monthly open meeting, FERC approved NERC Reliability Standards CIP-013-2, CIP-005-7 and CIP-010-4, their associated implementation plans, violation risk factors and violation severity levels. FERC determined that NERC’s proposed modifications satisfy the directive issued in December 2020 in Order No. 850 to modify these Reliability Standards to include Electronic Access Control or Monitoring Systems as applicable systems. The Reliability Standards also address a recommendation from the NERC Cyber Security Supply Chain Risks Staff Report to include Physical Access Control System as applicable systems.

The ERO Enterprise appreciates today’s action and will continue to work with FERC and stakeholders toward assuring the reliability of the North American bulk power system.
