The attached LiveWire Spotlight article looks at recent actions taken by NERC to finalize PRC-005-2 and to prepare for the following phase – the development of PRC-005-3. Few material changes were made to PRC-005-2; most were made to the supporting documents instead. In addition, NERC has proposed a project schedule for PRC-005-3 to FERC; anticipating that the drafting team will be available to begin work in January 2013.

The latest drafts of PRC-005-2 and its support documentation have been posted for a 30 day review period and concurrent ballot. Industry stakeholders may return feedback to the project team until August 27, 2012.
