NERC Submits Reliability Standards IRO-002-5 and TOP-001-4

On March 6, 2017, in Docket No. RD17-4-000, NERC submitted proposed Reliability Standards IRO-002-5, Reliability Coordination – Monitoring and Analysis, and TOP-001-4, Transmission Operations. The proposed Reliability Standards address the Commission directives in Order No. 817 related to: (i) Transmission Operator monitoring of non-Bulk Electric System (“BES”) facilities; (ii) redundancy and diverse routing of Transmission Operator, Balancing Authority, and Reliability Coordinator data exchange capabilities; and (iii) testing of alternative or less frequently used data exchange capabilities. NERC hopes that the proposed Reliability Standards will build upon improvements made in prior versions of those standards.
