RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY3 NERC Antitrust Compliance Guidelines It is NERC’s policy and practice to obey the antitrust laws and to avoid all conduct that unreasonably restrains competition. This policy requires the avoidance of any conduct that violates, or that might appear to violate, the antitrust laws. Among other things, the antitrust laws forbid any agreement between or among competitors regarding prices, availability of service, product design, terms of sale, division of markets, allocation of customers or any other activity that unreasonably restrains competition. It is the responsibility of every NERC participant and employee who may in any way affect NERC’s compliance with the antitrust laws to carry out this commitment.
RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY4 Public Announcement Participants are reminded that this meeting is public. Notice of the meeting was posted on the NERC website and widely distributed.

RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY12
RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY13 Third Posting Details TOP Requirements R1 and R2: Deleted ‘Operations Planning’ from all time horizons dealing with Operating Instructions Operating Instructions are Real-time oriented Replaced ‘ensure’ with ‘address’ Entity can only address reliability issues, can’t guarantee reliability Restructured requirement wording for clarity Did not bring back Reliability Directive Definition was rejected in FERC NOPR Operating Instruction is approved terminology and capture’s SDT intent RSAW modified to address industry concern regarding increased compliance risk. Data Retention modified to address industry concern regarding administrative burden.
RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY14 Third Posting Details TOP Requirement R7: Capitalized ‘E’ in Emergency Uses defined term from Glossary Requirement R8: Deleted ‘other’ from ‘known other Transmission Operators’ Consistency with other requirements Wouldn’t be notifying itself so term is redundant
RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY15 Third Posting Details TOP Requirement R9: Deleted ‘NERC registered’ in front of ‘entities’ Consistent with other such deletions in second posting Added ‘sustained’ in front of ‘outages’ Not interested in momentary loss Combined ‘telemetering’ and ‘control’ equipment Consistent with Version 0 requirement language
RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY16 Third Posting Details TOP Requirement R10: Restructured to make clear what needs to be done internal versus neighboring TOP Areas Emphasized why this was being done – to determine SOL exceedances Changed ‘sub-100 kV’ to ‘non-BES’ for clarity of SDT’s intent Did not delete requirement for non-BES as this is required from FERC NOPR, IERP Report recommendations, and SW Outage Report recommendations
RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY17 Third Posting Details TOP Requirement R11: Replaced ‘ensure’ with ‘in order for it to be able to’ perform its reliability functions Can’t ensure reliability Requirement R13: Did not replace ‘ensure’ as term is correct here – entity must ensure Real- time Assessment is performed Did not change 30 minute timeframe as this is a FERC approved timeframe for Real-time Assessments Emphasized that an entity may have others perform the assessment
RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY18 Third Posting Details TOP Requirement R16: Replaced ‘Real-time Assessment’ with ‘analysis’ Need to consider all analyses such as Operational Planning Analysis Requirement R18: Deleted ‘Balancing Authority’ Balancing Authority not involved with SOLs
RELIABILITY | ACCOUNTABILITY19 Third Posting Details SDT made a good faith effort to address comments within constraints of project inputs Although 8 of 9 standards passed in second posting, all is dependent on TOP as standards are tightly intertwined and can’t be filed in pieces If TOP doesn’t pass, then all fail FERC remand kicks in if Project isn’t filed by January 31, 2015 Result would be specific directives from FERC on how to revise TOP and IRO standards
