Reliability Standards Implementation (ERO)
NERC is the Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) as mandated by the EPAct 2005 and requires all owners, users and operators of the bulk power system to register for the functions they perform. See NERC Criteria
BPA is working on a Reliability Issues Task Force together with customers, WECC and others to follow a consistent approach to register and comply with mandatory standards.

BPA has established delegation agreements with all customers for whom BPA takes on responsibilities for compliance with mandatory reliability standards.
