We are excited to offer an inexpensive third-party high level review to help Entities identify any areas of weakness and allow them to focus their resources more effectively on areas that need improvement. ~Ted Enos, Certrec President
Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
Certrec, a leading licensing and regulatory compliance service provider that supports NRC and NERC compliance, is pleased to announce its new NERC 693 and CIP Audit Checkup solution.
“NERC Audits are performed infrequently, often creating knowledge gaps, especially for those without full-time, dedicated compliance monitoring and resources,” says Ted Enos, President of Certrec. “We are excited to offer an inexpensive third-party high level review, which can be performed in 2-3 days, to help Entities identify any areas of weakness and allow them to focus their resources more effectively on areas that need improvement.”
Our Audit Checkups are conducted by field experts with more than 25 years of regulatory compliance and audit experience with NERC and the NRC. Their in-depth knowledge of NERC Standards and sub-requirements, audit procedures, compliance evidence, and regulator communications comes from serving leading Generation, Transmission Owner/Operators, and Balancing Authorities supporting Fossil, Wind, Hydro, Nuclear, and Renewable companies in all eight NERC Regions.
Through a sampling, Certrec’s NERC Audit Checkups benchmark your state of readiness by examining the critical areas of:
- NERC Compliance Implementation,
- 639 & CIP Standards and Requirements,
- Policies and Procedures Compliance, and
- Compliance Evidence.
Certrec’s NERC Audit Checkup employs NERC’s latest Actively Monitored List of Standards (AML), focusing on the most violated, most risk significant, and recently changed standards and requirements.
“Regional Entities are moving to non-date-specific schedules and auditors sometimes have differing approaches to interpretations of compliance across regions, thus making it even more important to ensure you are audit ready at any given point,” notes Enos.
Founded in 1988, Certrec is regulatory compliance service provider with more than 1,000 cumulative years of energy industry experience helping clients manage the regulatory process to their advantage.
Certrec's Office of Licensing and Compliance (OLC), Office of Assessment and Recovery (OAR), Office of NERC Compliance (ONC), and Office of New Plant (ONP) solutions are used by nuclear, fossil, and wind utilities and Registered Entities across the United States when complying with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) licensing and compliance standards.
