This LiveWire Spotlight is the second of two articles addressing proposed updates to the Rules of Procedure to align with NERC’s risk-based efficiency programs. Last Thursday’s article focused on the modifications related to Risk-Based Compliance. This article will explore the modifications supporting Risk-Based Registration – the initiative to de-register commercial functions and entities who pose little threat to electric system reliability.

NERC’s updated Rules of Procedure related to risk-based registration and the supporting documentation have been posted for a 45 day review. Comments must be emailed to NERC at ROPcomments@nerc.net and are due on May 28, 2015.
