These authorizations are identified in the Order Appendix as CertificateNos. EC-III-12, EC-III-04 and EC-III-10 for IPLs designated as 5L51, 5L52 and 2L112respectively.BC Hydro declares that it is maintaining a record in the form of Attachment 1 that lists:(a) The identity of the provincial authority or standards development authority whosereliability standards the holder of the certificate is complying with for the purposes ofsections 3 and 5 of the Order;(b) The names and reference numbers of the reliability standards that are applicable tothe IPLs listed above for which BC Hydro is the certificate holder; and(c) The reasons why BC Hydro is complying with those reliability standards.British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority, 333 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver BC V6B 5R3www.bchydro.com

January 27, 2022Ramona SladicSecretary of the BoardElectricity ReliabilityCanada Energy Regulator (CER)Compliance with National Energy Board (now CER) Order MO-036-2012,Order for Electricity Reliability StandardsFile OF-Fac-ElecGen-Rel-IPL 05Page 2 of 3BC Hydro has concluded that reliability standards applicable to IPLs are those that meetthe following criteria (Criteria):1. They are mandatory within a provincial authority framework; and2. They are applicable to Transmission Owner (TO), Transmission Operator (TOP),Transmission Planner (TP) and Transmission Service Provider (TSP) reliabilitystandard functional registrations within that provincial authority framework.The British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) has exclusive authority within BritishColumbia (B.C.), pursuant to section 125.2 of the B.C. Utilities Commission Act, to adoptand enforce reliability standards that are developed by the North American ElectricReliability Corporation (NERC), Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC), orother prescribed standard making body. If the BCUC determines that a reliabilitystandard is required to maintain or achieve consistency between B.C. and otherjurisdictions that have adopted the reliability standard, these same standards must beadopted in B.C. In order to reject a standard, the BCUC must determine that thestandard is not in the public interest in B.C. Further, the BCUC cannot amend anyreliability standard developed by the above standard making bodies nor can it, withoutthe approval of the Provincial Government, set a standard or rule pertaining to a matteraddressed by a reliability standard that has been assessed. The BCUC generallyconducts this standards assessment annually. As a result of this assessment andapproval process, there is normally a delay from the date a standard is approved in theU.S. to the date on which it is adopted in B.C.On March 6, 2013 and subsequently each year by January 30, BC Hydro provided to theCER its record of the names and reference numbers of the reliability standards that areeffective in B.C. as of January 30 and applicable to the IPLs. Attachment 1 outlines thechanges to the applicable reliability standards since the January 30 list was last filed.The reliability standards listed in Attachment 1 are approved by the BCUC and effectivein B.C. as of January 30, 2022.BC Hydro is complying with the reliability standards listed in Attachment 1 for thefollowing reasons:1. The identified reliability standard has been determined by the BCUC to be requiredto maintain or achieve consistency between B.C. and other jurisdictions that haveadopted the reliability standard and has been adopted by the BCUC as a mandatoryreliability standard in B.C. under the British Columbia Mandatory Reliability StandardProgram (B.C. MRS Program);2. The identified reliability standard applies to one or more of the TO, TOP, TP andTSP functional registrations under the B.C. MRS Program and therefore isapplicable to the IPLs for which BC Hydro is the certificate holder; and3. BC Hydro is registered for each of the TO, TOP, TP and TSP functions under theB.C. MRS Program and is therefore required to comply with each of the reliabilitystandards for the IPLs for which BC Hydro is the certificate holder.
