The Commission amended 18 CFR 154.112(a), addressing the filing of “special rate schedules,” reflecting special operating arrangements previously certificated pursuant to part 157 of the Commission's regulations (such as for the exchange of natural gas).[1]

As published in the 2015 edition of the Code of Federal Regulations, the final regulations (effective November 3, 2008) contained an error. Order No. 714 revised the fourth, fifth and sixth sentences to reflect new filing requirements. However, the published version of 18 CFR 154.112(a) incorrectly retained language from the earlier version that should have been superseded. The Commission did not intend to retain the superseded sentences. This correcting amendment removes the incorrectly-retained language. This correction does not affect 18 CFR 154.112(b) which remains unchanged.

End Amendment Part
Exception to form and composition of tariff.

(a) The Commission may permit a special rate schedule to be filed in the form of an agreement in the case of a special operating arrangement, previously certificated pursuant to part 157 of this chapter, such as for the exchange of natural gas. The special rate schedule must contain a title page showing the parties to the agreement, the date of the agreement, a brief description of services to be rendered, and the designation: “Rate Schedule X-[number].” Special rate schedules may not contain any supplements. Modifications must be made by inserting revised sheets, sections or the entire document as appropriate. Special rate schedules must be included in a separate volume of the tariff. Each such separate volume must contain a table of contents which is incorporated as a sheet or section in the open access transmission tariff.
