Sections: 1.3.5 and 1.3.6
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) would permit the incidental disclosure of Protected Information and ERCOT Critical Energy Infrastructure Information (ECEII) as part of a tour or overlook viewing of the ERCOT control room provided to eligible persons who, prior to accessing the control room, have signed nondisclosure agreements (“NDAs”) and complied with screening and other requirements provided in a policy adopted by ERCOT security. The policy will include a prohibition on taking photographs and recordings of Protected Information and ECEII. This NPRR would also exempt ERCOT from the requirement to provide notice of disclosure when ECEII or Protected Information is incidentally disclosed as part of a Control Room tour or overlook viewing, consistent with the conditions described above. This exception does not apply to a person who is a director, officer, employee, agent, representative, contractor, or consultant of a Market Participant that is registered with ERCOT as a Resource Entity, Qualified Scheduling Entity (QSE), Load Serving Entity (LSE), or Congestion Revenue Right (CRR) Account Holder.
