Central Records Filing Procedures

Updated E-Filing Instructions:

Please review the E-Filing Instructions before completing an E-Filing.

E-Filing submissions will be complete after submission through the PUC Interchange Filer. The filing party will receive an email confirming that we have received their E-Filing, followed by a confirmation email containing an attached E-Filing Receipt.

Once you receive the E-Filing Receipt - the second email - you are finished filing.

The documents you attach in Filer will be processed into a single PDF in the order in which the documents were attached. Therefore, if you attach a PDF and Word version of the same document, they will both end up in the PDF record copy that has a time stamp.

Please attach documents to your filing in the order in which you would like them to be filed.

You can submit an E-Filing at any time of the day, and it will be processed then. You will no longer have to wait for Central Records staff to finish processing your E-Filing.

If you are submitting a request for a new Control Number or a Confidential E-Filing, Central Records staff will process these during business hours.

Special Filing Procedures due to COVID-19:

Special rules are currently in effect due to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

During this time, all filings must be filed electronically. Please use the PUC Interchange Filer to do this.

In accordance with the Commission Order in 50664 issued March 16, 2020, service of pleadings in all PUC dockets will only be by E-Filing.

Please contact Central Records if you have any questions:
