Today’s LiveWire Spotlight article concerns the latest drafts of the final three COM and IRO Standards addressing Reliability Coordinator operational capabilities and responsibilities. COM-002-3 and IRO-001-3 have been posted for recirculation ballot with only minor corrections to grammar. However, the project team has re-written major portions of COM-001-2, which did not gain anywhere near the 2/3 support required from the industry ballot body in the prior vote.

All three Standards are posted for a 30 day industry stakeholder review ending on July 6, 2012. A successive ballot on COM-001-2 will take place during the last ten days of the review period – a recirculation ballot for the other two.
