MRO may at times request that a Registered Entity self-certify compliance to one or more reliability standards or requirements. Through a Self-Certification, the Registered Entity makes an assertion regarding its compliance with the requirement in question or the requirement's applicability. The annual CMEP Implementation Plan currently includes the use of guided Self-Certifications. Guided Self-Certifications typically are limited in scope and include instructions on how to perform the self-assessment, what evidence to collect and review, and what information to communicate to MRO.
Quarterly guided Self-Certifications are used by MRO for standards and requirements associated with significant reliability risks identified at the regional level or ERO-wide. In some situations, guided Self-Certifications are also administered in place of a Compliance Audit for lower risk standards and requirements.
