The corporation assesses annually seasonal and long‐term reliability, monitors the bulk power system, and educates, trains, and certifies industry personnel, according to the NERC's website.

The NERC's area of responsibility spans the continental United States, Canada, and the northern portion of Mexico's Baja California state and is subject to oversight by the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and governmental authorities in Canada.

The meeting was held at the headquarters of the energy regulatory commission (CRE) in Mexico City and was attended by CRE representatives and officials from the national energy control center (Cenace) and the energy ministry, CRE said in a release.
