Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is on the Streamlined Violation Process recently announced by NERC as a means to improve the throughput of Standards violations that pose a small or negligible risk to the Bulk Electric System. It builds upon the modest reductions in compliance backlog achieved through the use of the Administrative Citation Process (ACP), in place since early 2011.

NERC expects to file their streamlined violation processing proposal to FERC in September. If the Commission approves of the initiative, the Compliance Team will begin to apply it to low-risk violations immediately afterwards
