Registered Entity Forum

The purpose of the Registered Entity Forum (REF) is to promote compliance excellence and provide a way for SERC registered entities to exchange information, share lessons learned, and generate concerns and questions to be provided to SERC staff anonymously through an REF Steering Committee member. All registered entities are welcomed to reach out to their REF representatives. A summary of each representative's experience in areas of Operations and Planning (O&P) or Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP), along with their contact information, is available by clicking either the O&P or CIP REF Representatives link.

Complete information may be found in the REF Charter and REF Information documents.
