If an entity registered with North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) identifies a possible violation to a NERC Reliability Standard(s) applicable to its registered function(s) during a self-assessment or other internal review, that entity should self-report the possible violation. Texas Reliability Entity, Inc. (Texas RE) strongly encourages the entity to self-report; a self-report is considered a mitigating factor when Texas RE determines the appropriate penalty or sanction.
A registered entity that believes that it has violated a NERC standard should submit a self-report via webCDMS .
Although submittal of a mitigation plan to remedy a possible violation is not required until after the violation is confirmed, early submittal is encouraged. Submittal of a mitigation plan is not deemed an admission of a violation.
An entity that has submitted a self-report will still need to complete a self-certification as scheduled.
An employee of a registered entity may anonymously and confidentially report a possible violation on the Ethics and Compliance Hotline site or by calling (888) 242-6340.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Texas RE Self-Reporting .
