The wording in R7 should be modified slightly such that obtaining regulatory approval is an optional requirement and not mandatory requirement of the standard. An entity should not be held non-compliant if they do not seek regulatory approval prior to implementing a corrective action plan.

All utilities have some form of regulatory approval of investments.   This variance should be applicable across all of NERC, not just Canada.

OPG suggest to revise the following statement from Attachment 1-CAN as follow: “Where the information available is insufficient to support an alternative approach, Canadian registered entities shall (instead of "should") use the methodology in Attachment 1.”

     This is good section, but if the Canadians find a different methodology that is more accurate it needs to apply to all under TPL-007.  

     Much of the existing methodology is derived from the Canadian events and data.

     So if the Canadian find some thing better it need to apply to more than Canada.

Technical papers published in peer-reviewed journals without the publishing review comments do not necessarily represent an industry accepted position.    It should state technical papers and review comments published in peer-reviewed journals.  Should follow the IEEE paper model.

OPG has the following additional comments:

Field readings can be used for validation of the physical modeling assumption (earth transfer function and network modeling) at the first opportunity (i.e. GMD events).

There should be a timeline related to the submission associated with the regulatory approval of the CAP implementation.

The research and development in this field continues to evolve.   More remains to be learned which will result in tool refinements to support more precise analysis and  study conclusions.  Hence, it should be emphasized that the interpretation of assessment results should account for the maturity of methodologies and software toolset applied.
