Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines NERC’s 2019 Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Program (CMEP) – the eleventh annual operating plan providing reliability compliance guidelines to the Regions and assuring that all obligations to U.S./Canadian law are met. The ERO Enterprise continues to employ the risk-based approach to compliance first implemented in 2015, although the Risk Elements have changed dramatically from last year.

NERC’s 2019 Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Program will serve as the template for the Regional Entities’ individual implementation plans (IPs). They will be releasing their IPs along with audit schedules later this year.
