Take notice that the Commission will now display on its electronic filing system the time used by the Commission to mark officially the time that eFilings and eTariff submissions are made with the Commission. This time also will be used to determine whether filings have been made timely. The time display will assist users in ensuring that their filings are timely filed, i.e., are filed in advance of the Commission's 5 p.m. Eastern time deadline for filing on that day.
The time will display to the second on all screens after log-in, including those for eTariff submissions. The time a filing is made is established when the last file uploaded appears in the table at the bottom of the File Upload screen. Filings made after the Commission's 5 p.m. Eastern time deadline are considered as having been filed on the following day. See 18 CFR 375.105 (2010).
Filers, particularly those filing requests for rehearing where the deadline for filing is set by statute and cannot be waived, are strongly encouraged to file well in advance of 5 p.m. to minimize the possibility that unexpected problems may delay the filing beyond the 5p.m. Eastern time deadline for filing.Start Signature
