Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates the first application of the approach developed by NERC to transition the “Guidelines and Technical Basis” section of every standard to (potentially) two other documents – either Technical Rationale or Implementation Guidance.  The content in nine of the eleven IRO standards was found to still be valid and stand-alone documents were created for industry vetting.

The initial Technical Rationale Transition of the IRO Standards have been posted a 45-day review period and a concurrent non-binding poll.  Clients have until December 18, 2019 to provide their comments back to the drafting team and place their ballots.
