Current through Register Vol. 44, No. 20, April 6, 2022

(1) When service required. Except where otherwise provided by law, every pleading, motion, document, or other paper filed in a contested case proceeding and every paper relating to discovery in such a proceeding shall be served upon each of the parties of record to the proceeding, including the person designated as advocate or prosecutor for the state or the division, simultaneously with their filing. Except for the original notice of hearing and an application for rehearing as provided in Iowa Code section 17A.16(2), the party filing a document is responsible for service on all parties.
(2) Service -how made. Service upon a party represented by an attorney shall be made upon the attorney unless otherwise ordered. Service is made by delivery or by mailing a copy to the person's last-known address. Service by mail is complete upon mailing, except where otherwise specifically provided by statute, rule, or order.
(3) Filing -when required. After the notice of hearing, all pleadings, motions, documents or other papers in a contested case proceeding shall be filed with Division of Banking, Attn: Superintendent, 200 East Grand Avenue, Suite 300, Des Moines, Iowa 50309-1827. All pleadings, motions, documents or other papers that are required to be served upon a party shall be filed simultaneously with the division of banking.
(4) Filing -how and when made. Except where otherwise provided by law, a document is deemed filed at the time it is delivered to the division of banking, delivered to an established courier service for immediate delivery to that office, mailed by first-class mail or state interoffice mail to that office so long as there is proof of mailing, or delivered by electronic transmission to the email address specified in the notice of hearing. Filing by electronic transmission is complete upon transmission unless the party making the filing learns the attempted filing did not reach the division. The division will not provide a mailed file-stamped copy of documents that are filed by email or other approved electronic means.
(5) Proof of mailing. Proof of mailing includes either a legible United States Postal Service postmark on the envelope, a certificate of service, a notarized affidavit, or a certification in substantially the following form:

I certify under penalty of perjury and pursuant to the laws of Iowa that, on (date of mailing), I mailed copies of (describe document) addressed to the Division of Banking, Attn: Superintendent, 200 East Grand Avenue, Suite 300, Des Moines, Iowa 50309-1827 and to the names and addresses of the parties listed below by depositing the same in (a United States post office mailbox with correct postage properly affixed or state interoffice mail).

(6) Electronic service. The presiding officer may by order or a party or a party's attorney may by consent permit service of particular documents by email or similar electronic means, unless precluded by a provision of law. In the absence of such an order or consent, electronic transmission shall not satisfy service requirements but may be used to supplement service when rapid notice is desirable. Consent to electronic service by a party or a party's counsel shall be in writing, may be accomplished through electronic transmission to the board and other parties, and shall specify the email address for such service. Service by electronic transmission is complete upon transmission unless the board or party making service learns the attempted service did not reach the party to be served.
