Access documents that provide guidance to market participants on meeting compliance obligations for power system reliability standards set by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC).
The ISO’s Reliability and Operations Compliance (ROC) group provides guidance to New England transmission owners and market participants by working with the Northeast Power Coordinating Council (NPCC) to publish the Corroborating Evidence Interpretations and Compliance Guidance (CEICG) statements available below. CEICG statements are reviewed and agreed to by NPCC auditors and used by NPCC auditors to:
The ISO also provides helpful information using Compliance Bulletins for specific standards. For example, while the standard MOD-025-2, Verification and Data Reporting of Generator Real and Reactive Power Capability and Synchronous Condenser Reactive Power Capability, does not specifically apply to the ISO in its NERC functional roles, the bulletin for MOD-025 details how generator and transmission owners can provide required information to the ISO. ISO Compliance Bulletins are not coordinated with NPCC auditors and do not take precedence over NERC standard requirements. If you believe that there may be a discrepancy, please contact ROC.
Please read this guidance for new NERC transmission owners to learn how to perform the following required actions:
