The Reliability Panel has approved an amended timeline for completion of the Review of the System Restart Standard. The issues paper for the review set out July 2016 as the target for publication of the draft report; the amended timeline sets the 25 August 2016 as the date for publication of the draft report with the final report scheduled for publication on 17 November 2016.  This publication timeline will enable adequate consideration of the technical, economic and social issues related to the review.

This amended timeline is consistent with the terms of reference for this review which require completion of the review by December 2016.

The panel has now published the presentation slides from the public forum held on 27th April 2016, along with a report on major international blackouts and restoration policy, commissioned by the Panel and prepared by DGA Consulting.

Further detail on the review status and key dates can be found at the project page.
