At any given time, there are numerous concurrent standards under revision by NERC. Changes are ongoing across all of the NERC reliability standard families including Protection Relay and Control (PRC), Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP), Transmission Planning (TPL), System Modelling (MOD), and Facilities Design, Connection and Maintenance (FAC). The continually evolving compliance obligations require careful monitoring to effectively manage regulatory risk. You need a trusted advisor to help you stay current with and understand interrelated NERC requirements across standards families.
