FERC Approves Restoration of NERC ROP 402.3.1 Regarding Regional Entity Audits

On March 1, 2012, in Docket No. RR10-11, FERC issued a letter order approving NERC’s compliance filing restoring section 402.1.3.2 of the NERC Rules of Procedure.  Section 402.1.3.2 requires NERC to establish a program to audit and evaluate how Regional Entities’ enforcement programs are meeting their delegated authority and responsibilities.  Paragraph 20 of FERC’s October 7, 2011 order rejected NERC’s proposal to remove section 402.1.3.2 from its Rules of Procedures, and directed NERC to submit a compliance filing reinstating the section within 30 days.  To view FERC’s letter order, click here.
