The subject of today’s LiveWire Spotlight is the five concept papers posted by the Reliability Assurance Initiative team. They outline the underlying theory behind the risk-based Compliance approach and the strategic steps to transition from the present zero-tolerance environment.

The initial drafts of the Reliability Assurance Initiative concept papers have been posted for industry review and commentary. They will be filed with FERC during 2Q2013 – and include a proposal to fully deploy by 2016.
