FERC Dismisses Request for Clarification Regarding NERC Rules of Procedure


September 18, 2008
On September 18, 2008, FERC dismissed EEI's request for clarification of Section 1600 of the NERC Rules of Procedures regarding data and information requests made by NERC.  FERC dismissed as "premature" EEI’s request that FERC clarify how it might address its Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) obligations under circumstances where NERC must collect data or information on behalf of FERC and the timeliness of such data collection is of the essence.  FERC said it would "address its obligations under the PRA when and where appropriate."
