Commission Information Collection Activities; Comment Request


The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) previously issued a 60-day Notice in the Federal Register requesting public comments on the revisions to FERC-725A (Mandatory Reliability Standards for the Bulk-Power System), and FERC-725Z (Mandatory Reliability Standards: IRO Reliability Standards). The Commission received no comments. Another unrelated item is currently pending review at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under FERC-725A. Only one item per OMB Control No. may be pending OMB review at a time. In order to submit this material for Docket No. RD17-4 timely to OMB, the package will be submitted to OMB under FERC-725Z, and a `placeholder' information collection number, FERC-725A(1C) (Mandatory Reliability Standards for Bulk-Power System: Reliability Standard TOP-001-4) rather than under FERC-725A. In compliance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Commission is submitting the FERC-725A(1C) and FERC-725Z to the OMB for review of the revised information collection requirements. Any interested person may file comments directly with OMB and should address a copy of those comments to the Commission as explained below.
