(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
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:
FIRST REVISION OF SHEET ....
ORIGINAL SHEET ....
When the first revision of a sheet is to be amended, it
must be cancelled by a second revised sheet in the following manner:
SECOND REVISION OF SHEET ....
FIRST REVISION OF SHEET ....
The same number formatting must be used consistently
throughout the tariff.
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.
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
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
Subsequent revisions of
the revised tariff sheet that effected the cancellation must omit the required
