Today’s LiveWire Spotlight expands upon NERC’s third submission of the status of rulings issued by the Commission which require the ERO to develop or modify its base of Reliability Standards. In it, NERC calculates that over half (60%) of all 735 directives that have been issued since 2007 are fulfilled – and another 92 are pending the Commission’s review.

NERC’s ability to address all open directives will depend on the outcome of eleven projects presently under FERC’s review – including CIP v5 and Paragraph 81. If any are remanded, NERC’s resources will be re-focused on those priorities.
