The NERC being the regulatory authority that evaluates and also improve the reliability of the BPS in North America, is responsible for the development and enforcement of NERC reliability standards. These standards are developed through an intensive industrial wise ANSI-accredited procedure. This ensures that this particular process is opened to members of the public who are for both materially and even directly affected by the same reliability of the bulk power system of the North America.
The shareholder participation in this process is particularly a key element of developing these NERC reliability standards. There are two balloting procedures involved; first, the NERC announces the forming of a ballot pool where members of the RBB are then required to join each of the ballot pool of interest, but by use of the direct link provided in the announcement. Two, the NERC goes ahead and announces that the ballot is open for balloting. Members would then go online using the provided link and cast their votes.
