Self-Logging is open to all registered entity applicants meeting the eligibility criteria described in the MRO Self-Logging Program Eligibility Determination Process.  In order to complete its review and make an eligibility determination, MRO may request information from the registered entity regarding its processes for identifying, assessing, and addressing noncompliance and risks to reliability of the Bulk Power System. 

After evaluating a registered entity's request for participation in self-logging, MRO will provide a response outlining the basis for its determination to grant or deny self-logging.  Self-logging may be limited to certain categories of Standards or identified Standard Requirements. 

Upon approval by MRO, a registered entity can maintain a log of self-identified minimal risk issues of noncompliance and submit the log to MRO on a periodic basis (initially every three months).  Self-logged minimal risk issues of noncompliance are presumed to be resolved as Compliance Exceptions.  MRO will continue to work with the registered entity to ensure a proper understanding of the program and the expectations surrounding accuracy in describing noncompliance, assessing risk, and adequacy of mitigating activities.

For more information or to request participation in Self-Logging, registered entities should contact mro-self-logging@midwestreliability.org.
