The self-logging program permits registered entities that possess sufficient internal controls to maintain a
self-logging spreadsheet for eligible minimal risk noncompliance issues. The registered entity typically submits its
noncompliance logs to Texas RE at least once every three months. There is a presumption that these self-logged minimal
risk noncompliance issues will be resolved as Compliance Exceptions.
To determine a registered entity’s eligibility to self-log, Texas RE conducts a formal review of the registered entity’s
internal controls. To participate in the self-logging program, the registered entity must demonstrate that it has
sufficiently institutionalized processes in place to identify, assess, and correct operational risks to reliability.
The details regarding the evaluation process for these internal controls are described in
ERO Enterprise Self-Logging Program Document.
To be evaluated for self-logging, please complete the
Self-Logging Program Participation Request, attach
any relevant documents regarding your internal controls you believe Texas RE should consider in its
formal evaluation, and send an email to Texas RE Enforcement with the subject line “Request for Evaluation – [Registered Entity Name].”
Upon receiving the request, Texas RE will contact you regarding any additional information we may
need to complete our review. Once Texas RE receives all the necessary information, we will begin
the process of evaluating whether your registered entity is eligible to self-log. Following completion
of our evaluation, Texas RE will provide you with a written notice regarding whether your registered entity
qualifies for self-logging and an explanation of the factors affecting Texas RE’s determination. Texas RE may
also limit your registered entity’s self-logging activities to certain categories of Reliability Standards or
identified Reliability Standard requirements.
