FERC Approves Revisions to Appendix 4D of the NERC Rules of Procedure

On January 11, 2012, in Docket No. RR12-1, FERC issued a letter order approving NERC’s proposed revisions to section 1.3 of Appendix 4D of the NERC  Rules of Procedure, which addressed the procedures for requesting and receiving Technical Feasibility Exceptions (TFEs).  On November 14, 2011, NERC submitted a petition requesting approval of a revision to Section 1.3.  The purpose was to correct an error in section 1.3, which contains the list of the Applicable Requirements for which a Responsible Entity may request a TFE.  Currently, section 1.3 of Appendix 4D lists the Interpretation in Appendix 3 to CIP-006-3c R1.1 as an Applicable Requirement, but the correct reference should be to “the Interpretation in Appendix 2” of CIP- 006-3c.
