Tips for Using ePUC

ePUC is an electronic filing and case management system that you can use to find information about Commission cases and read documents related to those cases. Most types of new cases can be filed in ePUC; subsequent phases of ePUC will go live later in 2018. Information on how to use ePUC, including the current version of the Commission’s Procedures for Electronic Filing Using ePUC, is available.

On August 30, 2018, the Commission issued an order amending the Commission's Procedures for Electronic Filing Using ePUC.  The changes include:

  • Eliminating the need to file a hard copy of documents filed electronically in ePUC with the exception of documents filed in tariff cases.
  • Expanding the use of ePUC to all matters before the Commission with the exception of telecommunications tariff cases.
  • Incorporating the requirement previously described in memoranda that lists of prefiled testimony and exhibits for documents previously filed in ePUC include the document number assigned to each document by ePUC.
  • Clarifying that a filer must contact the Clerk of the Commission before filing a document in ePUC in a case with a status of "closed."
