Notice is hereby given that a new docket prefix “NP” has been established for Notices of Penalty filed by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) pursuant to Order No. 672, issued February 3, 2006.[1]

Regional Entities have authority under Order No. 672 to assess penalties for violations of Reliability Standards approved by the Commission. After a Regional Entity assesses a penalty, NERC reviews it. If appropriate, NERC will make a filing with the Commission called a “Notice of Penalty.”

Each “Notice of Penalty” will receive a new “NP” docket number.[2]

Notices of Penalty may be submitted using the Commission's electronic filing system (http://www.ferc.gov/​docs-filing/​efiling.asp). The Commission intends to release a new version of its electronic filing system on February 29, 2008. The new version will greatly expand the documents eligible for efiling and will eliminate the need for most of the special filing procedures currently posted on the Commission's Web site. If NERC plans to file any Notices of Penalty before February 29, 2008, NERC should contact the efiling Help Line (202-502-8258; efiling@ferc.gov) in advance of filing to request pre-assignment of an NP Docket Number. If NERC plans to file any Notice of Penalty that includes non-public information, or an entity seeks to file an Application for Review that includes non-public information, contact the efiling Help Line.
