FERC Approves Retirement of Reliability Standard BAL-004-0

On January 18, 2017, in Docket No. RD17-1-000, FERC issued an order approving the retirement of Reliability Standard BAL-004-0, Time Error Correction.  The purpose of Reliability Standard BAL-004-0 was to ensure that Time Error Correction was conducted in a manner that did not adversely affect the reliability of the Interconnection. NERC proposed retirement on November 10, 2016 because it felt Reliability Standard BAL-004-0 had become redundant due to improvements made to mandatory Reliability Standards that help ensure continued adherence to frequency approximating 60 Hertz over long-term averages.
