The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has published ten CIP standards (CIP-002-5 through CIP-009-5, CIP-010-1, and CIP-011-1) which include a new and revised NERC Glossary definitions and a proposed implementation plan. The documents have been posted on the NERC website for a formal 60-day comment period which will be accepted via an electronic form. The implementation plan identifies each requirement in the already-approved Version 4 CIP standards and identifies how the requirement has been treated in the Version 5 CIP standards.
