Certrec, a leading regulatory compliance provider for NERC compliance, announced today its participation in AWEA’s Wind Energy Fall Symposium in San Antonio, TX from November 15-17.
Currently Certrec provides NERC compliance support, on an ongoing basis, to four U.S. wind fleets as well as individual wind facilities. We also provide supplemental support to a U.S. wind fleet’s NERC team. We appreciate the trust that our wind clients have placed in our team, and look forward to the opportunity to work with additional facilities.
An entity that is dedicated to compliance operates every day in compliance. Every day, they are audit ready. This is accomplished through an effective Internal Controls Process with periodic self-evaluations of effectiveness, coupled with a robust corrective action process.
Certrec Corporation is dedicated to regulatory compliance exclusively and has been since we started in 1988. We believe our approach is the key to our successful client programs as well as our growing NERC practice.
Our approach is conservative when managing NERC compliance. One size does not fit all in our industry. A “standardized” approach to NERC compliance, using a software application or cookie cutter templates, does not result in a successful NERC compliance program. Our industry is comprised of customized systems, talented individuals, and unique corporate cultures. In addition, newcomers to the workforce plus new (sometimes fledgling) technologies all need to be incorporated into this regulatory framework. As the regulators often mention – NERC compliance must be “baked in” not “bolted on” to an organization.
“As an AWEA member, we’re excited to share our expertise at the Wind Energy Fall Symposium with participants who are seeking better ways to manage risk, assure data security, and continue their successful NERC compliance programs.” – Ann Broussard, Office of NERC Compliance Business Development Director
