In this order on rehearing and clarification, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (the Commission) clarifies that: Balancing Authorities and their Authority Services will have until 60 days after publication of this order to implement the validation requirements of Order No. 771; validation of e-Tags means that the Sink Balancing Authority, through its Authority Service, must reject any e-Tags that do not correctly include the Commission in the CC field; the requirement for the Commission to be included in the CC field on the e-Tags applies only to e-Tags created on or after March 15, 2013; the Commission will deem all e-Tag information made available to the Commission pursuant to Order No. 771 as being submitted pursuant to a request for privileged and confidential treatment under 18 CFR 388.112; the Commission is to be afforded access to the Intra-Balancing Authority e-Tags in the same manner as interchange e-Tags; and the requirement on Balancing Authorities to ensure Commission access to e-Tags pertains to the Sink Balancing Authority and no other Balancing Authorities that may be listed on an e-Tag.
In this Final Rule, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (the Commission) is amending its regulations, pursuant to sections 222 and 307(a) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), to grant Commission access, on a non-public and ongoing basis, to the complete electronic tags (e-Tags) used to schedule the transmission of electric power interchange transactions in wholesale markets. This Final Rule will require e-Tag Authors (through their Agent Service) and Balancing Authorities (through their Authority Service) to take appropriate steps to ensure Commission access to the e-Tags covered by this Final Rule by designating the Commission as an addressee on the e-Tags. After the Commission is designated as an addressee, the Commission will access the e-Tags by contracting with a commercial vendor. The commercial vendor will provide data management services and receive e-Tags addressed to the Commission. The information made available under this Final Rule will bolster the Commission's market surveillance and analysis efforts by helping the Commission to detect and prevent market manipulation and anti-competitive behavior. This information will also help the Commission monitor the efficiency of markets and better inform Commission policies and decision-making, thereby helping to ensure just and reasonable rates. In addition, this Final Rule will require that e-Tag information be made available to regional transmission organizations and independent system operators and their Market Monitoring Units, upon request to e-Tag Authors and Authority Services, subject to appropriate confidentiality restrictions.
