Take notice that on April 28, 2009, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, a technical conference will be held to discuss the implementation of electronic tariff filing. In Order No. 714,[1] the Commission adopted regulations requiring that, as of April 1, 2010, tariff and tariff related filings must be made electronically. The first technical conference was held on December 3, 2008.

This conference will cover: the data fields and formatting to be included in the Table of Contents on the Commission's public viewer; issues that have arisen with respect to the testing site, including the need for dates or versioning in the comma separated value files and the error codes and descriptions; and a discussion of the means by which companies may, if they choose, include pending compliance tariff provisions in their baseline filings. Time permitting, participants also will be free to ask questions about other issues related to electronic tariff filing.

Background material on the standards and requirements can be found on the Commission's Web site (; click on eTariff under the Documents and Filings Heading).
