Registered Entity Forum

If you have a question you would like to submit anonymously, you may do so by contacting one of the Registered Entity Forum Steering Committee members. Registered Entity Forum (REF) sessions are generally held during SERC seminars. However, REF Steering Committee members are gracious enough to assist registered entities within the SERC Region throughout the year. For your information, the REF is open to participation by all entities registered in the SERC Compliance Registry, regardless of membership status in SERC. The purpose of the REF is to promote compliance excellence, elevate the collective compliance culture, and strengthen reliability among all SERC Region registered entities. The REF is a self-directed forum that provides a safe harbor for registered entities to (1) exchange information, (2) share lessons learned, (3) discuss compliance issues of interest and importance, and (4) generate concerns and questions to be provided to SERC staff regarding compliance with SERC and NERC reliability rules, standards, and regulations. The REF Steering Committee is comprised of representatives from registered entities, and members are elected by the registered entities. Positions include representatives with both CIP and Operations & Planning expertise. If you would like to be on the committee, elections are held each fall. REF Steering Committee members are prohibited from disclosing to SERC the names of registered entities whose concerns or questions are discussed with SERC staff members. Should you have questions or topics that you would like to discuss with them, please feel free to contact the committee members listed on the CIP or Operations & Planning links above. Responses to previously submitted questions are available on the SERC website. From the SERC home page, select Outreach / Q&A and Lessons Learned. The REF Charter is posted to the SERC website. From the SERC home page, select Outreach / Registered Entity Forum. Elections are held each November, and committee members serve a two-year term.
