Reliability Standards Standing Committee

At the IESO Electricity Reliability Organization workshop in June 2006, stakeholders expressed interest in becoming more actively engaged in the development of new reliability standards that could have an impact on Ontario's electricity industry. In response, the IESO created the Reliability Standards Standing Committee (RSSC), currently led by Scott Berry, Registration & Compliance Support.

The purpose of this standing committee is to assist market participants develop a more comprehensive understanding of their reliability obligations by:

  • notifying participants of reliability related information on new and developing reliability standards
  • providing a forum to discuss and develop consensus comments on new and developing reliability standards
  • engaging participants in the standard development process of NERC and NPCC

The majority of stakeholder engagement takes place by e-mail communications and is open to any stakeholder wishing to join.

Questions regarding the Reliability Standards Standing Committee or its membership can be directed to rssc@ieso.ca

For more information on the IESO's involvement in the reliability standards development process, please visit the reliability standards webpage.
