FERC Issues NOPR Proposing to Retire 34 Requirements

On June 20, 2013 in Docket No. RM13-8, FERC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) proposing to retire 34 requirements within 19 Reliability Standards that are redundant or otherwise unnecessary, and where violations of these requirements pose a lesser risk to the reliability of the Bulk-Power System. In addition, the NOPR proposes to withdraw 41 outstanding Commission directives that NERC make modifications to Reliability Standards that have been addressed in some other manner, are redundant with another directive, or provide general guidance as opposed to a specific directive.
