Start Preamble

Take notice that the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB) has announced that it will hold its first conference call on August 13, 2015, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, to initiate its process for developing standards for the submission of Commission forms in XML format. In the Commission's April 16, 2015, Order in this proceeding, the Commission announced it was beginning a process to develop a revised method for natural gas pipelines, public utilities, and oil pipelines to file forms, and asked NAESB and the electric, natural gas, and oil industries to establish a collaborative process with Commission staff to develop standards for filing forms.[1] On June 10, 2015, Commission staff held a technical conference to explore a transition to XML format, as well as NAESB's assistance in that transition process.

After the staff technical conference, the Commission received five comments generally supportive of moving forward with the NAESB process. NAESB has agreed to sponsor this project and the August 13, 2015 conference call is to establish procedures for moving forward. The comments also posed certain questions that should be addressed during the NAESB meetings.

NAESB has posted details regarding the conference at​pdf4/​naesb_​weq-wgq_​ffs_​081315ma.pdf. Further information regarding participation can be obtained by contacting NAESB by phone (713-356-0060) or email (
