Help Company Identifier
Order No. 714 mandated that regulated entities file their tariff filings electronically, effective April 1, 2010. One of the required data elements to enter the FERC's eTariff filing web page and required as part of the XML filing package is a "Company Identifier" [company_id].
Company Identifiers are acquired through requests made through the FERC Online application known as Company Registration. This application will permit a company to request a Company Identifier, modify information associated with an existing Company Identifier, and request a new password.
Prior to making such a request, the user should read, understand and acquire the information that must be provided to complete the Company Registration process. The information requirements are explained in the Instructions for Company Registration (updated November 20, 2012).
With the assembled information, the user should go to the Commission's FERC Online page and select Company Registration . The Instructions for Company Registration (updated November 20, 2012) provides step-by-step instructions on how to register a company.
