UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BEFORE THE FEDERAL ENERGY REGULATORY COMMISSION
Complaint of Michael Mabee Related to Critical Infrastructure Reliability Standards
Docket No. EL20-46-000
Motion to Intervene and Comments of Trade Associations
EPSA joins 5 electric trade associations in filing comments asking FERC to dismiss the most recent complaint from Michael Mabee, which was filed at FERC on May 11, 2020 (Docket No. EL20-46). The joint comments request that FERC dismiss Mr. Mabee’s complaint on the ground the Complaint fails to articulate any connection between the President’s May 1, 2020 Executive Order on bulk electric system equipment and Reliability Standard CIP-013-1. The comments also explain that Mr. Mabee’s complaint does not identify any basis for requiring the Commission to address the NIST Cybersecurity Framework in the CIP Standards.
