Reliability Standards Under Development
The RSUD page provides access to all projects including: Reliability Standards, Standard Authorization Requests, Periodic Reviews, and Interpretations.

NERC Standards Projects have been increasing in quantity; coinciding with the increasing pace of technology changes in our industry and the issuance of FERC directives. The high priority projects listed below will be completed in 2024. The medium and low priority projects will have completion dates of 2025 and beyond.

​​​​Once standard(s) are adopted by the NERC Board of Trustees and filed with FERC, the associated project is moved to the Archived Reliability Standards Under Development page and the standard(s) are added to the appropriate family of standards on the Reliability Standards page.
