REGISTRATION & CERTIFICATION

REGISTRATION & CERTIFICATION

Bulk power system owners, operators, and users that meet certain criteria are required to register with NERC. Once registered, a registered entity must verify its registration on an annual basis with SERC. An important part of the criteria used in determining if registration is required is the NERC BES Definition. In addition, the registered entities that are registered for the Reliability Coordinator (RC), Balancing Authority (BA), and Transmission Operator (TOP) are also required to be certified.

COMPLIANCE & ENFORCEMENT

SERC Reliability Corporation’s Compliance organization monitors compliance with Reliability Standards among all users, owners, and operators of the bulk power system (BPS) in the SERC Region. Our goal is to engage with registered entities to promote and improve the reliability, adequacy, and critical infrastructure of the BPS by bridging the gaps between reliability and compliance through effective application of compliance tools and processes.
