Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Certain Consumer Products
This final rule incorporates certain changes to the Code of Federal Regulations addressed in a final rule published on October 23, 2013. That final rule adopted changes to definitions and energy conservation standards enacted through the American Energy Manufacturing Technical Corrections Act, among which were a revised definition and revised energy conservation standards for small duct high velocity central air conditioners and heat pumps. However, the final rule erroneously omitted the changes to the regulatory text. This final rule incorporates those changes.
Version 5 Critical Infrastructure Protection Reliability Standards
Pursuant to section 215 of the Federal Power Act, the Commission approves the Version 5 Critical Infrastructure Protection Reliability Standards, CIP-002-5 through CIP-011-1, submitted by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), the Commission- certified Electric Reliability Organization. The CIP version 5 Standards address the cyber security of the bulk electric system and are an improvement over the current Commission-approved CIP Reliability Standards. The CIP version 5 Standards adopt new cyber security controls and extend the scope of the systems that are protected by the CIP Reliability Standards. The Commission also approves nineteen new or revised definitions associated with the CIP version 5 Standards for inclusion in the Glossary of Terms Used in NERC Reliability Standards. In addition, the Commission directs NERC to develop modifications to the CIP version 5 Standards and submit informational filings.
