The WEQ EC remanded back to JESS and asked that two issues be worked upon:
Address standard request R13004 from BPA and CISO for consideration of expanded role of registered Market Operators in e-Tag
Address the long-standing multiple control of a single reliability limit profile per tag issuee-Tag 1.8.2 Functional Specification
JESS participants at the July meeting considered revising “allowed” entities in various roles within an e-Tag, but some pointed-out that approach would require significant work.
JESS participants then suggested the registration of product codes in the EIR such as “Market”.
BPA and CISO were asked to consider this optione-Tag 1.8.2 Functional Specification
They said yes.
JESS created a “no action” recommendation on R13004 (since no standard would be changing).
The new EIR products can be requested via an EIR Enhancement Request form submitted to the NAESB office.e-Tag 1.8.2 Functional Specification
ISAS leadership and representatives are seeking to resolve the long-standing issue.
At the July JESS meeting reviewed five possible approaches.
At the August JESS meeting settled on “option 5”, the most complicated but most effective approach.
