On September 17, 2010, FERC issued a Revised Policy Statement on Penalty Guidelines in Docket No. PL10-4, to address comments received regarding the initial March 18 Policy Statement. The revised Penalty Guidelines are still based on the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines. However, FERC states that it has made modifications to the Penalty Guidelines based on comments received. Enforcement staff will hold a technical conference one year from the issuance of these modified Guidelines to discuss how they have worked and to permit industry questions and comments.
