ACSP Suggestion 2018.21: Change in Wording in NRPM 8.3 and 8.4


Author: Mike Burns   
Submitted On: 09 August 2018

Description: Slight change to the language in 8.3 and 8.4 for clarity. Both have a sentence excepting “M&A” transfers from the 12 month waiting period. But “M&A” is neither a defined term, nor does it encompass all the eventualities covered in an 8.2 transfer (like a reorganization). I suggest the sentences refer to 8.2 transfers rather than “M&A” transfers.

Value to Community: Enhanced clarity, I have had a few customers get agitated over this.

Timeframe: Not specified
