Obligations and Coordinated Functional Registrations (CFR)

As an Interchange Authority (IA), Planning Coordinator (PC), Reliability Coordinator (RC), Transmission Service Provider (TSP), and Balancing Authority (BA), MISO is responsible for ensuring compliance with the NERC standards and requirements applicable to these functions, with exception of those requirements otherwise delineated by a Coordinated Functional Registration (CFR). 

Our Standards and Assurance department collaborates with Market Participants on activities that assist in meeting compliance obligations, thus decreasing the overall compliance burden to our customers.  This page contains resources to assist in locating compliance related information relevant to our business relationship.  Additional information about MISO’s overall compliance program can be found on our internal Code of Conduct page. Contact us with any compliance-related questions.

Market Participants use attestations or written documents  to confirm their compliance with the regulatory standards of the Electric Reliability Organization and its regional compliance monitors.

Under certain situations where MISO is the logical source for compliance verification, Standards and Assurance may provide our customers with individualized attestations. If this is the case, please complete the attestation request form and contact Standards and Assurance.
