Standards & Criteria

In the development and enforcement of Regional Reliability Standards, NPCC, to the extent possible, facilitates attainment of fair, effective, efficient, and competitive electric markets while providing an open, transparent, fair and inclusive process that has no financial barriers to participation.

NPCC develops Regional Criteria that are necessary to implement, to augment, or to comply with NERC Reliability Standards, but which are not Reliability Standards. NPCC Regional Criteria also address reliability issues not within the scope of Reliability Standards, such as resource adequacy.
