Certrec, a leading regulatory compliance and advanced on-line technology provider, announced today the release of a free trial of popular web-based solution – RegSource® GRC.


Certrec, a leading provider for NERC regulatory compliance and advanced on-line solutions, announced today the release of a 60-day free trial of its popular web-based compliance solution – RegSource® GRC (Grid Reliability and Compliance).

RegSource® is a daily, weekly, or monthly email notification of critical NERC industry updates and information. Ideal for both small and large compliance teams, it notifies compliance teams of timely industry knowledge, ranging from “Smart Notices” of current industry information and news to meetings, webinars, and training reports from FERC, NERC, the Regional Entities, and ISO/RTOs. Its main goal is to keep compliance managers and analysts informed of the latest and most essential news affecting NERC regulatory compliance.

NERC compliance experts are burdened with keeping track of the constantly evolving NERC standards on top of core business responsibilities. The 60-day trial allows the industry to have a sneak peek into what’s included with this online platform.

“There are so many parts to regulatory compliance that it is hard to have all the expert knowledge that your staff needs to be successful,” observes Ted Enos, Certrec President/CEO. “Each day, our SMEs review vital industry news and write Smart Notice alerts for RegSourcesup>® GRC with the high-level, actionable information on mandates and procedures. These alerts are then linked to the related documents that are found in our Recallsup>® GRC tool, ensuring our clients have access to the resources they need to continue supplying power to the grid.”

Included in the solution are “Smart Notices” that link to the most recently updated versions of compliance-related documents from NERC, FERC, Regional Entities, and ISO/RTOs. Those documents are housed in a separate compliance document library, Recallsup>® GRC, that holds FERC, NERC, regional, and industry documents from more than 100 industry sites in one location. Together, they offer NERC compliance personnel both vital information and suggestions for appropriate response actions.

“One of our main goals at Certrec is to help solve our clients’ regulatory problems so they can focus on other important tasks,” remarked Evans Heacock, Office of NERC Compliance Director. “RegSourcesup>® GRC provides them the information they need each morning to start their day informed and ready to successfully complete their tasks.”

The solution is fully maintained by Certrec’s support staff and has training ready to make the implementation as seamless as possible. As with all of Certrec’s other tools, RegSourcesup>® GRC is a web-based solution. There is nothing to install on servers or on computers, and it can be accessed from anywhere you have a browser and internet access. It is customizable for your specific functions, processes, and needs.
