NERC’s Reliability Issues Steering Committee (RISC) reports to the independent NERC Board of Trustees and is the key stakeholder group responsible for evaluating bulk power system reliability issues and risks. The RISC provides strategic leadership and advice to the NERC Board of Trustees and others to triage key reliability risks and propose solutions to manage those risks. The RISC also provides an annual analysis of risks to the bulk power system, and produces a relative prioritization of those risks. The RISC report ties into NERC’s action planning, resource allocation, budgeting and strategic planning processes.

The RISC has issued its 2017 report and NERC has integrated the recommendations into its business plan and budgeting process for 2018 and beyond.

In this Regulatory Update, you will learn more about:

  • The RISC report's reliability oriented priorities
  • Resilience and Recovery actions
  • Next Steps to understanding these priorities in depth
