NERC Submits Amendments to WECC RSDP

On June 8, 2017, in Docket No. RR17-5-000, NERC submitted a petition for approval of amendments to the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) Regional Reliability Standards Development Procedures (RSDP). WECC proposed the revisions to reflect a change in the NERC Compliance Registry. In particular, the revisions realign WECC voting sectors and include streamlined processes, a two-thirds affirmative fractional majority vote for WECC Regional Reliability Standard (RRSs) and WECC Regional Criteria (CRT), clarified treatment of Standard Authorization Requests (SARs), a new section on field tests, and other clarifications. The NERC Board of Trustees approved the amendments on May 11, 2017.
