NERC Submits Comments in Response to NOPR on Reliability Standard CIP-014-1

On September 8, 2014, in Docket No. RM14-15, NERC submitted comments in response to FERC’s July 17, 2014 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) proposing to approve Reliability Standard CIP-014-1 – Physical Security.  The purpose of proposed Reliability Standard CIP-014-1 is to enhance physical security measures for the most critical Bulk-Power System facilities and thereby lessen the overall vulnerability of the Bulk-Power System to physical attacks.  In its comments, NERC supports FERC’s proposal to approve the proposed Reliability Standards.
