FERC Issues NOPR Regarding Reliability Standard PRC-012-2

On January 19, 2017, in Docket No. RM16-20-000, FERC issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (“NOPR”) that would, among other things, approve Reliability Standard PRC-012-2, Remedial Action Schemes, submitted for approval by NERC on August 5, 2016.  The proposed reliability standard is designed to ensure that remedial action schemes do not introduce unintentional or unacceptable reliability risks to the bulk electric system.  In addition, the NOPR proposes to approve the associated violation risk factors and violation severity levels, implementation plan, and effective date proposed by NERC. While proposing to approve Reliability Standard PRC-012-2, the Commission also seeks clarifying comments addressing “limited impact” RAS.
