Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines three Recent Interpretation Requests regarding key concepts in one Transmission Operations and two Cyber Security standards. They invoke a process that has existed since NERC standards became enforceable in 2007, but has been on hold for over two years.

The requests for interpretation of CIP-002-5.1, CIP-007-5, and TOP-002-2.1b are posted on the NERC website. The initial responses will be returned after a drafting team has been assigned and had the opportunity to review the submitted materials.
