Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates the second update made to NERC’s Rules of Procedure related to Risk-Based Compliance. The changes were made in response to directives issued by the FERC process after their review of the original submission to add further restrictions to the handling of Compliance Exceptions (i.e.; those infractions posing minimal risk to the BES).

NERC’s proposed Rules of Procedure governing risk-based compliance and the supporting documentation have been posted for a 45 day review. Comments must be emailed to NERC at ROPcomments@nerc.net by January 14, 2016.
