NERC Requests Approval of Revisions to NERC Rules of Procedure

On May 7, 2012, in Docket No. RR12-8, NERC submitted a request for approval of revisions to Sections 300, 400, 600, 1000, 1400, and 1700 of the NERC Rules of Procedures (ROP), as well as to Appendices 2, 4B, 4C, and 5B, and also requested approval for the deletion of Appendices 3C and 6.  The proposed revisions are the result of a wide-ranging, comprehensive review of the ROP conducted to identify improvements to the underlying processes reflected in the ROP based on the experience of NERC and the Regional Entities to date. The proposed revisions were also intended to further implement actions identified in NERC’s 2009 Three-Year ERO Performance Assessment Report, to eliminate inconsistencies, and to make other improvements and clarifications.
