The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has published 10 CIP standards (CIP-002-5 through CIP-009-5, CIP-010-1, and CIP-011-1), a set of new and revised NERC Glossary definitions, and a proposed implementation plan. The documents have been posted on the NERC website for comment period through Friday, Jan. 6, 2012, which will be accepted via an electronic form. The implementation plan, also called the mapping document, identifies each requirement in the already-approved Version 4 CIP standards and identifies how the requirement has been treated in the Version 5 CIP standards.
