The Standards Program is required under the SPP-NERC Regional Delegation Agreement, as well as NERC Rules of Procedure, Section 300. SPP RE coordinates with NERC to develop and maintain technically sound, fair, and balanced reliability standards that enable NERC and Regional Entities to measure the reliability performance of bulk power system owners, operators, and users.
Through the process described in the NERC- and FERC-approved SPP RE Standards Development Process Manual, SPP RE may separate SPP Regional Reliability Standards that go beyond, add detail to, or implement NERC Reliability Standards, or that cover matters not addressed in NERC continent-wide reliability standards. SPP Regional Reliability Standards may be developed and exist separately from NERC continent-wide reliability standards, or may be proposed as NERC reliability standards. Regional reliability standards, if approved by the RE Trustees, are forwarded to NERC for review and submittal to FERC for approval.
Regional Standards Under Development
Any entity (person, organization, company, government agency, individual, etc.) with a direct and material interest in the Bulk Power System has a right to participate in the process by: a) expressing a position and its basis, b) having that position considered, c) voting on a proposed regional reliability standard through a segment weighted balanced process, and d) having the right to appeal.
