Title 3 . Commerce, Community, and Economic Development
Chapter 48 . Telecommunications
Section 310. Suspension and rejection of tariff filings

3 AAC 48.310. Suspension and rejection of tariff filings

(a) A tariff filing that is received by the commission in a form or filed by a method which, in whole or in part, is not consistent with 3 AAC 48.200 - 3 AAC 48.430, or which reflects retroactive rate treatment, will, in the commission's discretion, be rejected.

(b) When a tariff filing is rejected, it will be returned promptly to the utility or pipeline carrier with a letter explaining the reason it was rejected.

(c) A tariff filing or any portion of one, that has been rejected is void and, for all purposes, shall be treated as though it had never been filed.

(d) The commission will, in its discretion, by order stating the reason, suspend a tariff filing either in whole or in part at any time before the end of the statutory notice period to the commission.

(e) If the commission does not enter a formal order suspending a tariff filing, in whole or in part, the part that is not suspended takes effect when the statutory notice period has run in accordance with 3 AAC 48.240, or at a later date designated by the utility or pipeline carrier.

(f) Show cause orders and orders of investigation involving a suspended tariff will be issued under the same docket file number as the one under which the original suspension order was entered.

(g) If a suspended tariff filing is withdrawn by a utility or a pipeline carrier and later refiled, the commission will, in its discretion, suspend it again up to the full statutory period.

(h) An order of the commission suspending a tariff filing, in whole or in part, may later be vacated, in whole or in part, by means of an order in the same formal proceeding.

(i) During the suspension period, a utility or pipeline carrier may supplement or amend its tariff filing or make additional filings. However, if the supplementary or additional filings represent or make a significant or material change in the original filing, the commission will, in its discretion, suspend the filing again up to the full statutory period and renotice the supplemented or amended filing to the public under 3 AAC 48.280.
