This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
As announced in the Notice of Technical Conference issued on April 15, 2010, Commission staff will hold a technical conference on May 11, 2010. The purpose of this conference is to discuss the proposal in the Credit Reforms in Organized Wholesale Electric Markets Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding whether Independent System Operator (ISO)/Regional Transmission Operators (RTOs) should adopt certain tariff revisions to clarify their status as a party to each transaction so as to eliminate ambiguity regarding their ability to “set-off” market obligations and whether this proposal will have additional ramifications. The conference will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (EDT), in the Commission Meeting Room at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC. All interested persons are invited to attend, and registration is not required.
The agenda is attached. There will be two panels. The first panel will discuss the issue from the perspective of the ISO/RTO as market administrator but will also include the perspective of regulatory oversight in related markets. The second panel will discuss the issue from both a market participant perspective and a legal perspective.
