Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s latest 2018 Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Program (CMEP). Version 2.1 modifies the SPP’s Region-specific implementation plan to account for the recent dissolution of their Regional Entity Delegation Agreement with NERC. In addition, MISO and ReliabiltyFirst have reduced their commitments to conduct guided Self-Certifications in 2018 – perhaps experiencing growing pains in executing the new process.

NERC’s 2018 Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Plan Version 2.1 does not affect the existing Risk Elements, RE Implementation Plans, or audit schedules. The Risk-based approach appears to be fully ingrained in the process and should continue for years to come.
