Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines FERC Docket RD20-4-000 which authorizes NERC’s uncontested filing of seven standards modified in accordance with the Risk-Based Registration (RBR) Initiative.  The LSE has been removed as an applicable entity in five standards as the DP is already handling the reliability obligation.  The UFLS-Only Distribution Provider has been added as an applicable entity to PRC-006-4  and the Planning Authority has been removed from MOD-033-2.
The seven standards falling under the Standards Alignment with Registration project will take effect in the U.S. on April 1, 2021.  The remaining updates will take place as the other project teams finish their work.
