3 AAC 48.340 - Tariff sheet designation

Current through April 6, 2022

(a) Each new tariff sheet must be officially designated by the letters "RCA" in the upper left-hand corner of the tariff sheet, followed by the number of the utility or pipeline carrier's certificate of public convenience and necessity authorizing the utility or pipeline carrier to furnish the kind of service or commodity covered by its tariff.
(b) Each sheet of every tariff, except the title page, must bear a sheet number at the top of the sheet. The first publication of a tariff sheet must be designated as "Original Sheet....."
(c) The amendment of any sheet of a tariff shall be made only by reissuing the particular sheet upon which the change, addition, or cancellation is made. Reissuing the sheet means to cancel it by a new tariff sheet that contains the same tariff provisions except whatever additions, changes, or cancellations are made. Each revised tariff sheet must bear the same sheet number, either spelled out or in numerical format as the sheet it amends and must bear a consecutive revision number as explained in this subsection. A revised tariff sheet that amends an original sheet must be designated "FIRST REVISION OF SHEET ... ," "SECOND REVISION OF SHEET ... ," etc. Each revised sheet must direct the cancellation of the original or revised sheet that it amends and this cancellation may be shown in the manner indicated in the following example:




When the first revision of a sheet is to be amended, it must be cancelled by a second revised sheet in the following manner:




The same number formatting must be used consistently throughout the tariff.

(d) If, after a tariff has been issued, adding an additional sheet becomes necessary to provide for an expanded or additional tariff matter, the added sheet must be designated as an original sheet. not a revised sheet, and must be given the same sheet number, when added between existing sheets of the tariff, as the sheet that it follows. A period or dash suffix, in the numerical sequence, must follow the sheet number, but not both a period and dash. For example, a sheet added between sheets four and five of the tariff must be designated as "Original Sheet 4.1" or "Original Sheet 4-1" and a sheet added between 4.1 or 4-1 and 5 of the tariff must be designated as "Original Sheet 4.2" or "Original Sheet 4-2" etc. Either dashes or periods must be used consistently throughout the tariff. A sheet may not be added between two sheets both of which bear sheet numbers with suffixes containing two periods or two dashes. If amending original sheet 4.1 or 4-1 becomes necessary, it shall be done in the manner prescribed in (c) of this section by issuing the first revision of sheet 4.1 or 4-1.
(e) When the added sheet is added after the last sheet, at the end of the tariff, the added sheet shall be given the next consecutive number following the number of the last sheet of the tariff. For example, if the last sheet of a tariff is Sheet 99, the added sheet shall be designated "Original Sheet 100."
(f) When a revised tariff sheet is issued that omits rates, charges, or other provisions formerly published on the sheet that it cancels, and the omitted matter is transferred to a different sheet, the revised sheet must make specific reference to the tariff sheet on which the omitted matter will thereafter be found, The sheet to which the omitted matter is transferred must refer to the tariff sheet on which the matter was formerly published The cancellation of the matter on the former tariff sheet shall be made effective simultaneously with the effective date of the matter on the sheet to which it is transferred. Subsequent revisions of the revised sheets accomplishing the transfer must omit the references required in this subsection,
(g) If anything on a tariff sheet is to be cancelled entirely, and is not to be transferred to another sheet of the same tariff, the revised sheet that effects the amendment must specifically show the cancellation of the provisions, as prescribed under 3 AAC 48.360(g) Subsequent revisions of the revised tariff sheet that effected the cancellation must omit the required margin notations.
