The North American Electric Reliability Corporation is a nonprofit corporation which was formed by the electric utility industry to promote the reliability and adequacy of bulk power transmission in the electric utility systems of North America. NERC's mission states that it is to "ensure the reliability of the North American bulk power system."
The importance of the Bulk Electric System to the economy has led the North American Electric Reliability Council to define standards for maintaining its security and reliability. Descriptions of these standards are below.
