Certrec Corporation is dedicated to regulatory compliance exclusively and has been since we started in 1988. We believe our experienced team’s approach is the key to our successful client programs as well as our growing NERC practice. Our philosophy is conservative when approaching NERC compliance. One size does not fit all in our industry. A “standardized” approach to NERC compliance using a software application or cookie cutter templates does not result in successful NERC compliance programs. Our industry is comprised of customized systems, talented individuals, and unique corporate cultures. Newcomers to the workforce, extensive experience retiring, technological obsolescence, plus new (sometimes fledgling) technologies all need to be incorporated into this regulatory framework. As the regulators often mention – NERC compliance must be “baked in” not bolted on to an organization. We assist in establishing a robust NERC compliance program as well as a potent corporate culture in addressing the many industry dynamics mentioned previously. The end result is a robust Bulk Electric System.
