Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at two new proposed Implementation Guidance documents developed by the North American Transmission Forum (NATF) addressing CIP-005-6 and CIP-010-2.  Once endorsed by the ERO Enterprise, auditors will give special deference to entities who apply the guidance in their effort to comply with reliability standards.

As of February 6, 2020, The ERO Enterprise has officially endorsed twenty-eight guidelines related to the CIP, FAC, MOD, PRC, TOP, and TPL standards.  Six others addressing some of the most complex NERC requirements are under consideration.
