Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines Draft 4 of CIP-002-6, which looks to modify a criterion that improperly categorizes very small TO Control Centers as Medium-Impact despite their minimal impact on BES reliability.  This version backs out the updates made to the “Effective Dates” section of CIP-002-6 in Draft 3 – agreeing with feedback that the handling of planned and unplanned changes should be dealt with under a new SAR.

The fourth draft of CIP-002-6 and its supporting materials have been posted a 45-day review period and concurrent ballot.  Clients have until December 16, 2019 to provide their comments back to the drafting team and place their ballots.
