Clarification of a final order by conference.
The commission may schedule an order conference on its own motion or at a party's request. The commissioners may personally attend the conference or may designate one or more persons to attend on their behalf. The commission will determine whether an order conference will be recorded.
(1) Purpose. The purpose of an order conference is to clarify the meaning of a final order when parties disagree about the order's meaning or requirements. Parties to an order conference may ask for clarification of the meaning of an order to:
(a) Explore and resolve any barriers to compliance;
(b) Ensure that any compliance filing can be accurately prepared and presented;
(c) Propose technical changes that may be required to correct the application of principle to data; or
(d) Correct patent error.
The conference is not a forum for discussing or challenging the evidentiary, legal, or policy decisions expressed in the order. Parties may pursue those remedies through a petition for reconsideration or other means.
(2) Effect. An order conference will not stay the effect of an order, the time for compliance, the time for securing post-order review, or the time for petitioning for judicial review, unless the conference results in a supplemental commission order, which then becomes a final order subject to review. An order conference does not constitute a formal interpretation of an order. The final order that is the subject of an order conference will remain the sole expression of the commission's decision unless supplemented through an additional order.
