Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s 2016 Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Program (CMEP) Annual Report. The document provides information and statistics on risk-based compliance, the perception of audit team consistency and competence, the CIP v5 transition, and other key actions that took place during the year.

The success of NERC’s risk-based program will allow its continued application in 2017. In next year’s report NERC expects to continue to review IRAs and compliance monitoring activities to understand how Regional Entities identify and address risk.
