(A) Many filings pursuant to the rules adopted in this chapter are subject to an automatic approval process or a notice filing. With the exception of zero-day notices, an automatic time frame will begin on the day after a filing is made with the commission's docketing division. Furthermore, under an automatic approval process, if the commission does not take action before the expiration of the filing's applicable time frame, the filing shall be deemed approved and become effective on the following day, or later date if requested by the company. For example, a filing subject to a thirty-day process will, absent suspension or other commission action, become effective on the thirty-first day after the initial filing is made with the commission. Unless otherwise ordered, any motions not ruled upon by the commission during the filing's applicable time frame are deemed to be denied.
(B) A filing subject to the zero-day notice procedure will be effective on the same day the filing is made with the commission. Notice filings are not considered to be commission-approved.
