FERC Approves Reliability Standard COM-001-3

On October 28, 2016, in Docket No. RD16-9-000, FERC issued an order accepting NERC’s August 15, 2016 petition requesting approval of proposed Reliability Standard COM-003-1.  Reliability Standard COM-003-1 revises Reliability Standard COM-001-2.1 pursuant to FERC’s directive in Order No. 808, by requiring applicable entities to have Interpersonal Communication capabilities for the exchange of information necessary for the Reliable Operation of the BES.  NERC expects the Reliability Standard to address Interpersonal Communications capabilities that could involve the issuance or receipt of other communications impacting reliability.
