Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the second draft of CIP-003-7 – which also includes a proposal to retire the definition of Low-Impact External Routable Connectivity (LERC). This step was taken to defuse concerns that the standard would otherwise apply to non-BES assets.

CIP-003-7 Draft 2 and the retirement of the definition of LERC have been posted on the NERC website for a 45-day review period and concurrent ballot. Comments must be returned to the project team and votes cast by December 5, 2016.
