Filing Guidelines for Requests for No-Action Letter

What to Submit: Submit one original and two paper copies of the request, along with a text-searchable file (or files) on a 31/4” diskette or CD-ROM. Each page of the request and any supporting information or documents should include a header or footer stating “Request for No-Action Letter.”

Contact Info: Each request must include the name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address of the person to whom the response should be directed.

Where to Submit: Send your request to: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Office of the General Counsel, Room 10A-01, ATTN: Request for No-Action Letter, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426.

Use express mail or courier services to submit a Request for No-Action Letter to FERC. Regular mail sent through the US Postal Service to the Commission is subject to a 7-10 day delay for scanning. The scanning process also may destroy any diskettes and CD-ROMs included in the submittal.

The Commission determined that, at least initially, a Request for No-Action Letter is non-public material. The Commission's eFiling system is not ready to accept non-public material at this time and therefore, it is not available for the filing of requests for No-Action Letter.
