February 19, 2009
On February 19, 2009, FERC issued a notice announcing that it will not conduct further review of the five notices of penalty (NOP) NERC filed with the Commission on January 21, 2009. Each of these NOPs relate to violations of Reliability Standard PER-002, Requirement 3.1, for failure to have a set of training program objectives addressing the knowledge needed to apply standards, procedures, and requirements to normal, emergency, and restoration conditions.  There were no monetary penalties associated with any of these NOPs.  To view FERC’s notice, click here.
