FERC Issues Final Rule 766 on Delegation of Authority Regarding Electric Reliability Organization

On September 20, 2012, in Docket No. RM12-20, FERC issued Order 766, delegating to the Director of the Office of Energy Market Regulation (OEMR) the ability to act on certain NERC filings  involving budgets, business plans, delegation agreements and organization rules. OEMR currently does not have delegated authority to act under section 215 of the Federal Power Act, which covers NERC activities and filings. The final rule grants OEMR the necessary authority to act on such filings.
