||This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) amends the Market Participant eligibility criteria in Section 16, Registration and Qualification of Market Participants, by providing that an Entity is not eligible to register or maintain its registration with ERCOT as a Market Participant if the Entity meets any of the prohibited citizenship, ownership or headquarters criteria established in the Lone Star Infrastructure Protection Act (LSIPA), Texas Business and Commerce Code, Sections 113.002(a)(2)(A)-(b)(2)(B) or 2274.0102(a)(2)(A)-(b)(2)(B), added by Act of June 18, 2021, 87th Leg., R.S., Ch. 975 (S.B. 2116). The NPRR provides that if an Entity meets any of the LSIPA criteria solely due to the citizenship, ownership or headquarters of a wholly owned subsidiary, majority-owned subsidiary, or Affiliate, the Entity may be eligible to register as a Market Participant if it certifies that the subsidiary or Affiliate at issue will not have direct or remote access to or control of ERCOT’s Wide Area Network (WAN), Market Information System (MIS), or any data from such ERCOT systems. Any Entity that seeks to register as a Market Participant will be required to submit an attestation as reflected in the form Section 23, Form Q, Attestation Regarding Market Participant Citizenship, Ownership, or Headquarters, certifying that the Entity complies with the LSIPA criteria. If there are changes to a Market Participant’s citizenship, ownership, or headquarters such that the Market Participant meets any of the prohibited company citizenship, ownership or headquarters criteria identified in the LSIPA, then the Market Participant will be required to execute and submit a new attestation to ERCOT within ten Business Days of the change becoming effective. This NPRR amends the eligibility criteria for registration as an Independent Market Information System Registered Entity (IMRE) by adding a requirement that an Entity must have a genuine professional or business purpose for obtaining access to the MIS Secure Area to qualify for registration as an IMRE. ERCOT may determine, in its sole discretion, whether the Entity’s purpose qualifies for registration.
