4. If the Department determines that a petition is a petition for a declaratory order, the Department shall submit the petition to a hearing officer. The hearing officer may refuse to review a petition for a declaratory order if the petition does not include the information required by subsection 2 or violates the provisions of subsection 3.

(b) A hearing is conducted concerning the petition; or
(c) Any additional information or written argument is received by the hearing officer, whichever occurs later.
7. A declaratory order is appealable to the Commission in the same manner as any other appealable decision as provided in NRS 360.245 and NAC 360.172 to 360.185, inclusive.
8. A petition for a declaratory order and any related material, including, without limitation, any exhibit, hearing transcript, briefing to an administrative law judge or resulting declaratory order, is confidential unless disclosed in an appeal to the Commission pursuant to NRS 360.247.
9. If the Department finds that a person who filed a petition for a declaratory order provided inaccurate information in connection with the petition, the person who filed the petition cannot rely on any resulting declaratory order to bar any subsequent regulatory action by the Department nor may the Department grant a waiver pursuant to NRS 360.294 based upon the declaratory order.
10. A declaratory order issued pursuant to this section does not bar the Department from adopting a different interpretation of the law or pursuing a different policy in a future proceeding, including, without limitation, a petition for a declaratory order, enforcement proceeding or other adjudication.
