Are there any penalties for not complying with the GADS mandatory requirements of data submission?

by ronfluegge 14. June 2013 10:48

Mandatory GADS is under Section 1600 of the NERC Rules of Procedure. It is not under a standard or compliance regulation document.

This means that NERC cannot under any circumstances charge a fine for late GADS data. 

NERC can only write letters to the company, requesting they report data ASAP.

If the company refuses to send NERC data (not just asking for more time to report but refuses to go by the Rules of Procedure), then NERC is obligated to turn that information over to FERC for judgment.
