SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–725P1 (Mandatory Reliability Standards: PRC–005–6 Reliability Standard). OMB Control No.: 1902–0280. Abstract: The Commission requires the information collected by the FERC– 725P1 to implement the statutory PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 provisions of section 215 of the Federal Power Act (FPA). On August 8, 2005, Congress enacted into law the Electricity Modernization Act of 2005, which is Title XII, Subtitle A, of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005). EPAct 2005 added a new section 215 to the FPA, which required a Commissioncertified Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) to develop mandatory and enforceable Reliability Standards, which are subject to Commission review and approval. Once approved, the Reliability Standards may be enforced by the ERO subject to Commission oversight, or the Commission can independently enforce Reliability Standards. On February 3, 2006, the Commission issued Order No. 672, implementing section 215 of the FPA. Pursuant to Order No. 672, the Commission certified one organization, North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), as the ERO. The Reliability Standards developed by the ERO and approved by the Commission apply to users, owners and operators of the Bulk-Power System as set forth in each Reliability Standard. On November 13, 2015, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) filed a petition for Commission approval of proposed Reliability Standard PRC–005–6 (Protection System, Automatic Reclosing, and Sudden Pressure Relaying Maintenance). NERC also requested approval of the proposed implementation plan for PRC–005–6, and the retirement of previous versions of Reliability Standard PRC–005. NERC explained in its petition that Reliability Standard PRC–005–6 represents an improvement upon the most recently-approved version of the standard, PRC–005–4. FERC approved the proposed Reliability Standard PRC– 005–6 on December 18, 2015. Type of Respondent: Planning Coordinators (PCs) and Generator Owners (GOs). Estimate of Annual Burden: 1 The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden for the information collection as: 1 ‘‘Burden’’ is the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: FERC-725P1 (Mandatory Reliability Standards: PRC-005-6 
Reliability Standard).
    OMB Control No.: 1902-0280.
    Abstract: The Commission requires the information collected by the 
FERC-725P1 to implement the statutory provisions of section 215 of the 
Federal Power Act (FPA). On August 8, 2005, Congress enacted into law 
the Electricity Modernization Act of 2005, which is Title XII, Subtitle 
A, of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005). EPAct 2005 added a 
new section 215 to the FPA, which required a Commission-certified 
Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) to develop mandatory and 
enforceable Reliability Standards, which are subject to Commission 
review and approval. Once approved, the Reliability Standards may be 
enforced by the ERO subject to Commission oversight, or the Commission 
can independently enforce Reliability Standards.
    On February 3, 2006, the Commission issued Order No. 672, 
implementing section 215 of the FPA. Pursuant to Order No. 672, the 
Commission certified one organization, North American Electric 
Reliability Corporation (NERC), as the ERO. The Reliability Standards 
developed by the ERO and approved by the Commission apply to users, 
owners and operators of the Bulk-Power System as set forth in each 
Reliability Standard.
    On November 13, 2015, the North American Electric Reliability 
Corporation (NERC) filed a petition for Commission approval of proposed 
Reliability Standard PRC-005-6 (Protection System, Automatic Reclosing, 
and Sudden Pressure Relaying Maintenance). NERC also requested approval 
of the proposed implementation plan for PRC-005-6, and the retirement 
of previous versions of Reliability Standard PRC-005.
    NERC explained in its petition that Reliability Standard PRC-005-6 
represents an improvement upon the most recently-approved version of 
the standard, PRC-005-4. FERC approved the proposed Reliability 
Standard PRC-005-6 on December 18, 2015.
    Type of Respondent: Planning Coordinators (PCs) and Generator 
Owners (GOs).
    Estimate of Annual Burden: \1\ The Commission estimates the annual 
public reporting burden for the information collection as:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ ``Burden'' is the total time, effort, or financial resources 
expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or 
provide information to or for a Federal agency. For further 
explanation of what is included in the information collection 
burden, refer to Title 5 Code of Federal Regulations 1320.3.
    \2\ Entities affected by the PRC-005-6 Reliability Standard are 
registered to serve any of the following roles:
     PC = Planning Coordinators;
     GO = Generator Owners.
    Some entities are registered to serve both roles.
    \3\ The estimated hourly cost (salary plus benefits) provided in 
this section is based on the salary figures (http://www.bls.gov/oes/current/naics2_22.htm) and benefits (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/ecec.nr0.htm) for May 2017 posted by the Bureau of

Engineering career (Occupation Code: 17-2071).
