As announced in the ‘‘First Notice of Conference on Enforcement,’’ issued on July 11, 2007, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) will hold a conference on November 16, 2007, to examine the implementation of its enforcement authority as expanded by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005).1 The conference will be held in the Commission Meeting Room at the Commission’s headquarters located at 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426. Hearing Room 1 will be available for over flow. As stated in the previous notices, the purpose of the conference is to assess the enforcement program implemented by the Commission during the first two years after passage of EPAct 2005 primarily as it pertains to the additional subject matter authority and the expanded civil penalty authority in Part II of the Federal Power Act 2 and the Natural Gas Act.3 Standards of conduct, 1 Pub.

The Commission will accept comments filed within 30 days after the conference. As indicated in the Second Notice of Conference, issued on October 4, 2007 (Second Notice), this further notice sets forth the final conference format and schedule. The agenda has changed slightly from the concept described in the Second Notice.4 To begin the conference, we have added a presentation by the staff from the Office of Enforcement. This presentation will present an overview of the Commission’s actions and related enforcement activities during the first two years of EPAct Enforcement. Following the staff panel, the second panel, consisting of former members of the Commission, will focus on an overview of enforcement from a broad policy perspective as well as from their perspectives of advising clients on how to comply with the Commission’s rules and regulations. The discussion will examine how the Commission can best achieve compliance with regulatory requirements, and how it evaluates enforcement cases, including selfreported violations and matters that result in no penalty, and how companies subject to investigation can best respond to the Commission. The third panel will address similar topics, but from the more specific perspective of energy practitioners. Since the key goal of enforcement is to encourage compliance, the panel will discuss the challenges of working with clients to comply with the Commission’s regulations. In that regard, the panel will include a presentation from a representative of a company that, pursuant to a stipulation and agreement with Commission staff, developed and implemented a ‘‘best in class’’ model for regulatory compliance.5 In addition, the Commission would like to hear how practitioners counsel clients on how to respond to the Commission’s enforcement staff during an investigation, including the factors weighed in the decision to self report. The fourth panel will focus on reliability issues and includes representatives from the Electric Reliability Organization (the North American Electric Reliability Corporation), regional entities, and a utility. This discussion will look at how 4 See Attached agenda. Energy Resources, L.P., 110 FERC ¶ 61,205, at P14 (2005). 5 Coral E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1
