When should you file a succession or cancellation

With the adoption of eTariff there are a several filings which must now be made through the eTariff system. Two such filings are the Notice of Cancellation and Notice of Succession.

A seller must notify the Commission if the seller desires to cancel its tariff (18 C.F.R. ß 35.15, Notices of Cancellation or Termination). This notice is required to be submitted through the eTariff system. If the market-based rate tariff is the only tariff the seller has on file, or all of the records under one tariff are being cancelled, then the seller must also as part of that filing request that the Commission cancel that Tariff ID using a complete tariff cancellation type of filing. If, however, the records containing the sellerís MBR tariff are included with other records under the same tariff, the seller should use the partial cancellation type of filing.

A seller must notify the Commission through a Notice of Succession if the sellerís name changes, if the seller merges with another entity, or has its tariff adopted by another entity (18 C.F.R. ß 35.16, Notices of Succession). If the sellerís name appears in any part of the text of its tariff, the notice is required to be submitted through the eTariff system as a Tariff Revision. However, if the tariff does not include the sellerís name, the seller can change the name associated with the tariff by updating its name in the company registration database.
