Registration & Certification

Home / Program Areas / Registration & Certification

Bulk power system users, owners and operators that meet certain criteria are required to register with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC).  The process for registration is described in Section 500 and Appendix 5A of the NERC Rules of Procedure. MRO also conducts certifications to ensure that entities applying to perform the critical Balancing Authority, Transmission Operator and/or Reliability Coordinator reliability functions are capable of performing those functions. The NERC Bulk Electric System Definition provides important criteria used to determine if registration is required.
