Certrec, a NERC regulatory compliance service provider, has announced their fourth Annual NERC Compliance workshop is scheduled to be held February 18 to 20 in Texas. After the success of last year’s workshop, Certrec plans to continue the momentum with another conference, offering even more services and opportunities to the NERC community.
“Based on last year’s attendance and positive feedback, we are looking forward to hosting an even larger 2019 NERC Compliance Workshop,” President Ted Enos said.
Attendees will include generator owner/generator operators across regions, representing wind, solar, biomass, and other power assets. The workshop will provide updates on Internal Controls, Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement (CMEP), CIP, and other relevant standards. Three regional representatives will present their regulatory perspectives on the latest standards, the risk-based approach to compliance, and standards development.
Guest presenters will discuss cybersecurity, facility ratings, and human performance. Certrec’s NERC team will provide insights on best practices.
“Risk to the owner and operator can be reduced significantly with a robust NERC compliance program. Incorporating insights and operating experience from others are key components,” said Bob Biggs, Certrec ONC Services Director. “Sharing experiences as well as learning from your peers and the regulators results in continued compliance program growth and enhancement. The result is less time and money invested in NERC audits, self-reports, violations, and fines.”
Certrec is an engineering and technology-based organization providing regulatory support services in the electric power industry and has developed capabilities to support regulatory activities emanating from regulatory entities such as the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and regional entities.
