In February 1995, the Commission instituted the FERC Form No. 556 filing requirement, which should be included with any application for Commission certification/recertification or notice of self-certification/self-recertification.

On June 1, 2010, the Commission instituted the electronic fillable Form No. 556 at the link to the right side of this text. Electronic filing of this form is mandatory.

As of December 31, 2020, this Form No. 556 reflects changes the Commission instituted in Order No. 872 and Order No. 872-A.    

Order No. 874, issued December 17, 2020, is still pending review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act.  Order No. 874 will not change the current FERC Form No. 556 and instructions but does expand the use of the Form to certain fuel cells.
