Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s 2014-2016 Standards Development Plan. This marks the completion of the initial grouping of NERC projects that were launched in response to FERC Order 693 and related directives issued subsequent to it. It also signals a transition to a recalibration of regulatory priorities based upon the Paragraph 81 criteria, the input of the Reliability Issues Steering Committee (RISC), and the findings from an Independent Expert Review Panel (IERP).

The 2014-2016 planning documents have been posted on the NERC website for a 15 day review period. Clients have until September 13, 2013 to return comments back to the drafting team.
