FERC eRegistration Re-Certification

Systrends Updates Front Page - Fri, 10/04/2019 - 10:12

The Commission will initiate an annual recertification of all eRegistered user email addresses. eRegistered user accounts whose email addresses cannot be validated will be deactivated.  Deactivated user accounts will not be able to transact business with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission without reactivating their account including submitting filings in a docket or receiving notices/updates from any docketed matter   Information on the eRegistration recertification process is available at http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/eregistration.asp.

So if your company has recently changed domains and your email is different than what might be registered with FERC please update your email with them... If it is not updated, submitting Tariff or EQR filings will not happen

Be sure to check all Managers listed for each company registration along with Filing Agents

eForms Solution - Coming Soon

FERC Acts to Modernize Process for Filing Commission Forms
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is revising its electronic filing format for certain data collections to make it easier for filers to submit and data users to analyze information. By modernizing FERC’s data collections and making them more accessible, today’s final rule will increase efficiency in regulatory filings and business information processing, further the goal of transparency, and decrease the costs, over time, of preparing the necessary data for

The rule adopts eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL), a nonproprietary, open technology standard, as the new filing format. XBRL will enhance system compatibility and security, and allow efficient sharing of data across different information systems. Industry groups broadly supported the move to the new standard, which will be used for
filing Form Nos. 1, 1-F, 2, 2-A, 3-Q electric, 3-Q natural gas, 6, 6-Q, 60 and 714.

The next step is for FERC staff to develop a draft XBRL taxonomy that will be discussed at a future technical conference. The Commission will collect additional comments before issuing a subsequent order to adopt the final standard and establish an implementation schedule.

Systrends will be attending the Technical Conference and will also be building software to help with the Form Filing Process in XBRL.

New Begin/End Date Validation in EQR

Systrends Updates Front Page - Wed, 10/24/2018 - 08:29

To All EQR User:

FERC is apparently now allowing the same begin and end date for transactions less than 1 minute (since there are no seconds listed in the time column the number in the columns looks the same).

This means that your data can have a begin date of 090120181200 and an end date of the same exact number 090120181200

This is going to make it difficult to see if this is an error or a transaction less than 1 minute.

I am warning all users of this because while we have changed the software to allow the same begin/end dates (because I know of one customer that needs it), there is NO WARNING for it in the software right now. Adding the warning is going to take some time and won’t be completed until after this quarter.

Please check your dates carefully to make sure that all the transactions that are greater than 1 min have the correct end time.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
