All materials related to Rule 027 can be found on the Rule-related consultations section of the AUC’s website under the Rule 027 – Specified Penalties for Contravention of Reliability Standards tab.
The AUC continues to pursue opportunities to reduce the lag time between the approval of new or revised reliability standards or the removal of obsolete reliability standards and the inclusion of the new or revised reliability standards in Rule 027.
