NERC Requests Retirement of PRC-002-NPCC-01

On June 9, in Docket No. RD16-8, NERC filed a joint petition along with the Northeast Power Coordinating Council, Inc. (“NPCC”) requesting that FERC approve the retirement of NPCC Regional Reliability Standard PRC-002-NPCC-01, Disturbance Monitoring, and two related NPCC regional definitions.  NERC explained that the primary purpose of Regional Reliability Standard PRC-002-NPCC-01, to ensure that adequate disturbance data is available to facilitate Bulk Electric System event analyses, is addressed by the recently approved continent-wide Reliability Standard PRC-002-2, Disturbance Monitoring and Reporting Requirements.  NERC concluded that retirement will have no adverse effect on reliability and is in the public interest.
