FERC Approves Reliability Standard PER-003-2

On November 21, 2018, in Docket No. RD18-9-000, FERC issued a delegated letter order approving Reliability Standard PER-003-2 and retirement of currently-effective Reliability Standards PER-003-1 and PER-004-2. The purpose of proposed Reliability Standard PER-003-2 is to make sure certain System Operators are certified through the NERC System Operator Certification program when filing a Real-time operating position responsible for control of the Bulk Electric System (BES). Reliability Standard PER-003-1 is being retired because it is being replaced by this standard and Reliability Standard PER-004-2 is being retired because it contains requirements that are redundant with other Commission-approved Reliability Standards.
