FERC-725S, Mandatory Reliability Standards: Emergency Preparedness and Operations (EOP) Reliability Standards (Docket No. RD23-1-000)

OMB 1902-0270

OMB 1902-0270

Pursuant to section 215 of the Federal Power Act (FPA), the Commission approves Reliability Standards and definitions of terms submitted in three related petitions by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), the Commission-approved Electric Reliability Organization (ERO). The Commission also approves NERC's revised definition of the term "Remedial Action Scheme" as set forth in the NERC Glossary of Terms Used in Reliability Standards (NERC Glossary), and modifications of specified Reliability Standards to incorporate the revised definition. Further, the Commission approves the assigned violation risk factors and violation severity levels, proposed implementation plans, and the retirement of certain currently effective Reliability Standards. The Commission discusses concerns regarding several of NERC's proposals and, depending on the comments provided in response, the Commission may direct NERC to develop further modifications to address the concerns and possibly delay the retirement of one currently effective standard. RM17-12: approves the following changes to Reliability Standards EOP-004-4 (Event Reporting), EOP-005-3 (System Restoration from Blackstart Resources), EOP-006-3 (System Restoration), and EOP-008-2 (Loss of Control Center Functionality). The proposed EOP Reliability Standards are intended to: • provide accurate reporting of events to NERC’s event analysis group to analyze the impact on the reliability of the bulk electric system (EOP-004-4); • delineate the roles and responsibilities of entities that support system restoration from blackstart resources which generate power without the support of the grid (EOP-005-3); • clarify the procedures and coordination requirements for reliability coordinator personnel to execute system restoration processes (EOP-006-3); and • refine the required elements of an operating plan used to continue reliable operations of the bulk electric system if that primary control functionality is lost (EOP-008-2). The Commission approves the associated violation risk factors, violation severity levels, implementation plans, and effective dates. In addition, the Commission proposes to retire currently-effective Reliability Standards EOP-004-3, EOP-005-2, EOP-006-2, and EOP-008-1 immediately prior to the effective dates of the proposed EOP Reliability Standards
