NERC as the electric reliability organization for North America makes regulations which prescribe all the matters which are necessary or required to be prescribed for carrying out their mandate. These observations are subject to an oversight by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission as well as numerous government authorities in Canada. The basic focus of NERC’s regulation compliance and enforcement program is to improve the reliability of the bulk power system in North America by consistently and fairly enforcing regulations together with the NERC standards.
In fact, in most of the North American countries, the NERC regulations require that any electric installation must comply with at least more than one set of regulations which have been issued by the national authorities or even by any recognized private body.
Before starting a design, these local constraints are some of the most essential things that one should take into account. For example, the safety principle of devices such as the IEC 60364 or even the 60479-1 is one of the fundamentals of most electrical NERC regulations and standards worldwide.
