4901:1-6-04 Application and notice filings.

(A) For all applications required to be filed under this chapter, a telephone company shall use the most up-to-date telecommunications filing form for telephone-related applications and notice filings. This form may change from time-to-time without further commission entry. Commission staff will maintain a current, updated copy to provide to applicants. The most recent version of the form will be posted on the commission's web site.

(B) The applicant shall complete the telecommunications filing form in its entirety and supply all required attachments and affidavits as outlined on the form.

(C) The telecommunications filing form shall be signed by counsel for the applicant, an officer of the applicant, or an authorized agent of the applicant, and shall identify any agents or employees authorized to make filings on behalf of the applicant before the commission.

(D) Failure to utilize the current telecommunications filing form for any initial filing as well as failure to include the required attachments as outlined on the form may result in immediate dismissal of the application. The commission, the legal director, the deputy legal director, or an attorney examiner has the authority to issue the entry dismissing an application under this rule.

(E) All amendments, motions, and other supplemental pleadings to an open case under these rules need not use the telecommunications filing form, but must clearly state the case number such filings are in reference to.
