Critical Energy Infrastructure Information

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has amended its regulations for gaining access to critical energy infrastructure information (CEII). These changes are being made based on comments filed in response to the March 3, 2005, notice seeking public comment on the effectiveness of the Commission’s CEII rules. The final rule removes federal agency requesters from the scope of the rule, modifies the application of non-Internet public (NIP) treatment, and clarifies obligations of requesters. It also discusses changes that will be made to non-disclosure agreements. The rule is effective June 28, 2005. For additional information, please contact Jessica Roger at
