The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has the authority to levy penalties against energy providers for violating electric reliability standards. Attorneys representing companies or businesses involved in this area must untangle complex regulatory requirements in order to provide iron clad counsel – as companies face steep financial penalties should mandatory compliance requirements not be met.

Any entity that owns, operates, or uses any portion of the Bulk Power System must comply with the mandatory reliability standards. The compliance process itself involves periodic, formal NERC au¬dits by the Regional Reliability Councils (RRC), active self certification, periodic reporting of compliance data and statistics, exception reporting of disturbances, and self reporting of any non-compliance with NERC policies, procedures, or standards. Any attorney involved in this area can benefit from a solid, approachable legal reference that provides a quick, but thorough understanding of the law.

NERC and Mandatory Electric Liability Compliance is a reliable, up-to-date source offering:
•  Comprehensive treatment for providing sound counsel to a full range of clients involved in this area
•  The reliable insights of experts specializing in energy compliance and compliance in other highly regulated industries
•  Thorough explanations of the plethora of rules and procedures that constitute the standards and the application of the standards to any entity
•  Clear direction for ensuring audit readiness - helps you identify compliance risks, flag compliance gaps early in the process, advise as to how to identify and collect data needed to avoid risk and financial exposure
•  Clarity on the applicability of the standards - determine when some, or all of the standards apply – again, allowing you to efficiently shore up an organization for an audit
•  Direction for advising corporations on an ongoing basis – including internal enforcement of standards, alignment of personnel, processes, tools and technology for maintaining a compliant culture
