Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines a mandatory data request authorized by NERC’s Board of Trustees (BOT) after reviewing a staff report addressing the effectiveness of the three supply chain standards.  It  consists of seven questions (some with sub-parts) that aim to quantify the supply chain risk associated with low-impact assets and the cost impact should oversight programs be mandated.

U.S.-based entities must complete the Section 1600 Supply Chain Assessment Data Request by October 3, 2019.  (Canadian Clients are also encouraged to do so.)   Responses can be entered online at https://nerc.checkboxonline.com/2B1914B2-C713-4002-A25B-ADCE06896708.
