Today’s LiveWire Spotlight reminds Clients of four new/updated NERC standards that become mandatory and effective next month.  Three appear in the Critical Infrastructure Protection category (CIP-005-6, CIP-010-3, and CIP-013-1; the supply chain standards) and the other falls under Transmission Planning (TPL-007-4; the geomagnetic disturbance planning standard).

The supply chain standards and TPL-007-4 take effect October 1 – any previous versions will be retired one day earlier.  Going forward, applicable planners, owners, and operators must comply with, and have evidence that they are complying with, these standards.
