All bulk power system owners, operators, and users that meet criteria defined in the Statement of Compliance Registry Criteria found in Appendix 5B of the NERC Rules of Procedure are required to register with NERC. The process for registration is described in Section 500 and Appendix 5A of the NERC Rules of Procedure. The NERC Compliance Registry (NCR) lists all registered entities that are subject to compliance with approved Reliability Standards. The current NCR is posted on the NERC website.
2020 annual registration confirmation
The SERC Registration and Certification department will not be conducting the 2020 SERC Annual Registration Confirmation. The Registration team is reviewing current processes and making necessary changes to ensure that SERC obtains all of the required information and documentation for our records. The Annual Registration Confirmation will resume in 2021. If you have any questions, please send them to SERCregistration@serc1.org.
The Centralized Organization Registration ERO System (CORES) was established to provide consistency and alignment across the ERO for registration activities. CORES is the platform that will allow the entity to manage their registration information, contact information, and functional relationships from one application.
CORES is accessed through the ERO Portal. Information on the CORES project, application functionality and training, and ERO Portal registration is available on the NERC website at the links below:
NOTE: Prior to the full implementation of the NERC Align Project, Compliance contact information (i.e., Primary Compliance Contact, Alternate Compliance Contact and Primary Compliance Officer) should continue to be updated through the current SERC Registration Process below.
The Registration Process
Until CORES is fully implemented in conjunction with the NERC Align Project and to assist entities in the transition, initial Registrations and Registration changes may be submitted using the Registration Form and the GO/GOP Asset Verification Form, if applicable. Click the form’s link (here and under Quick Links below), and then click Open > View > Edit Document. Completed forms may be submitted to SERCregistration@serc1.org.
To change or revise your organization’s registration:
- If your organization is already registered in the SERC Region, to change or revise your registration, send an email to SERCregistration@serc1.org with a subject line of: Change Registration. Attach the completed Registration Form with the changes noted in the Reason for Request section and attach the GO/GOP Asset Verification Form, if applicable.
- If your organization is registered in more than one Region, please update your registration with all the Regions you are registered in as appropriate.
