2014 Completed OEB Reviews

Summary of New or Amended Reliability Standards and Criteria for which OEB Review Period is Closed

The IESO is responsible for communicating to market participants new or amended reliability standards and criteria which may be subject to the Ontario Energy Board's (OEB) review. The OEB or any person may make an application for review of a reliability standard as long as actions are initiated within the time prescribed in sections 36.1 and 36.2 of the Electricity Act, 1998:

  • IESO posts a new or amended reliability standard on its website within seven days of it being notified by the standards authority.
  • There is a 21-day window for any market participant, including the IESO, to apply to the OEB for review of the reliability standard. The OEB is also able to initiate its own review within 120 days.
  • If there is no review, the standard would go into effect under the Market Rules upon the enforcement date of the reliability standard.
  • If reviewed, the OEB has the authority to stop the standard from applying in Ontario and to refer it back to the standards authority.

The table below provides a summary of  new or amended reliability standards and criteria for which the OEB review process was closed in 2014.

Note:

  1. Last Date to Request an OEB Review is 21 days after the IESO posts the approved standards or criteria from NERC or NPCC to this website. Please note that the OEB has 120 days for its review period from the posted date.
  2. The mandatory enforcement dates of NERC reliability standards and NPCC criteria are governed by Chapter 5, sections 1.2.6 and 1.2.7 of the Market Rules.
  3. Applicability includes the IESO and Ontario Entities including T - Transmitters, G - Generators, W - Connected Wholesale Customers, PSE - Purchasing-Selling Entities, D - Distributors, and the OPA (Ontario Power Authority)
  4. An interpretation is offered by a designated Standard Drafting Team (SDT) in response to an industry request. It provides clarification of the intent of a requirement but may not expand or redefine it. If approved by the industry ballot pool and the NERC Board of Trustees (BOT), these interpretations are appended to the standard and filed with the OEB. When the affected Reliability Standard is next revised using the Reliability Standards Development Process, the interpretation will then be incorporated into the Reliability Standard.
