Start Preamble November 3, 2005.

Take notice that two technical conferences will be held in the offices of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC. All interested persons may attend, and registration is not required. This will be a staff conference, but Commissioners also may attend.

These technical conferences will address industry perspectives on certain issues, which are the subject of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in Docket No. RM05-30-000. The discussions will focus on the process that the Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) will use in proposing the new mandatory reliability standards, the role of regional entities in that process, and how existing reliability standards can be improved over time.

The first technical conference will be held on Friday, November 18, 2005, from approximately 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. (EST), in the Commission Meeting Room on the second floor of the Commission. A follow-up technical conference is tentatively scheduled for Friday, December 9, 2005. Additional details for both conferences, including agendas, panelists, and the time and location for the December conference, will be provided at a later time.

Transcripts of the conferences will be immediately available from Ace Reporting Company (202-347-3700 or 1-800-336-6646) for a fee. They will be available for the public on the Commission's eLibrary system seven calendar days after the Commission receives the transcript.
