Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the initial draft of the geomagnetic disturbance standard (TPL-007) which addresses the handling of Corrective Action Plans (CAPs) that may result from GMD “hot spot” studies.  The project team has proposed two updates that call for CAPs to be developed for any assessment that detects a GMD vulnerability and to severely limit deferments in their execution.

The initial draft of TPL-007-4 – Geomagnetic Disturbance Planning and its supporting materials has been posted for a 35-day review and initial ballot.  Comments are due back to the project team and votes must be cast by September 9, 2019.
