Today’s LiveWire Spotlight focuses on NERC’s 2015 CMEP Annual Report, which summarizes last year’s performance of the ERO Compliance and Enforcement Teams – a transitional period in BES reliability oversight. The report provides information and statistics regarding risk-based compliance, the perception of audit team competency and value, the CIP v5 transition, and more.

The success of NERC’s 2015 risk-based program will allow its continued application in 2016. In next year’s report NERC expects to conduct a deep dive on the most prevalent risk elements, Compliance Exceptions, and self-logged issues.
