The final 2018 SRT Grades are posted below.
Background On March 9, 2016, the Standards Committee (SC) endorsed using an enhanced version of the Independent Expert Review Panel grading tool as the metric to grade all NERC Reliability Standards. The existing grading tool also includes a question on cost effectiveness. The chairs of the SC, Operating Committee, Planning Committee, a Regional representative, and NERC staff comprise the PRSRT. The PRSRT has been tasked with initial grading of currently-enforceable Reliability Standards that have been subject to enforcement in the United States for at least one year. PRSRT members will independently grade each of the 2018-eligible Reliability Standards, then an initial industry stakeholder public grading session will be held. Stakeholder participation allows those with expertise in the implementation of the standards being reviewed to provide input to the PRSRT before posting grades for public comment. After the initial grading session, NERC will post the results for a 45-day stakeholder comment period. The PRSRT will consider stakeholder comment prior to finalizing the grade for each of the 2018-eligible Reliability Standards. The 2019-2021 Reliability Standards Development Plan will include the final 2018 grading results and will be presented to the NERC Board of Trustees (Board). The periodic review teams will use the grading as an input to their work. If a periodic review team recommends changes to a Reliability Standard, the PRSRT will re-grade and post the revised draft standard for stakeholder comment. The results of the re-graded standard will then accompany the standard recommendation when it is presented to the Board for adoption. The SC leadership and NERC staff are working together to facilitate grading for the 2018-eligible standards.
