CIP Auditor Notes Certrec’s Client “Has a Positive Commitment to NERC Compliance”

For successful CIP audits, the electric power industry needs experience and knowledge from NERC compliance support teams

FORT WORTH, Texas (PRWEB) July 12, 2018 — Certrec, a leading regulatory compliance provider for NERC compliance, recently assisted a generator owner/operator (GO/GOP) client in developing and submitting documentation for a NERC CIP audit conducted by a regional entity (RE). 

The auditor noted the Risk Impact Evaluation was well planned and methodical, RSAWs were very comprehensive, reference information was available quickly, documentation was excellent, and the organization has a positive commitment to compliance. There were no violations and no findings – a successful audit. 

“This audit result was a resounding endorsement of the philosophy of maintaining an ongoing NERC compliance program,” commented Bob Biggs, Certrec’s Office of NERC Compliance Business Services Director. “Certrec provides audit support for many of our clients. The auditors often comment about the obvious commitment to compliance as well as the organization of information,” Biggs said. “Our clients work hard to establish and maintain their safe, resilient portion of the bulk electric system (BES). A well-organized and well-documented NERC compliance program is a key element contributing to their success.” 

With Certrec, your NERC work is done once and done right.
