WAC 480-07-835

Clarification of final order by motion.

(1) Motion for clarification. Any party may request that the commission clarify a final order by filing a motion for clarification within ten days after the commission serves the order. The purpose of such a motion is to ensure that the parties know their rights and responsibilities under the final order. An appropriate motion for clarification requests that the commission modify the final order or take other action to accomplish one or more of the following goals:
(a) Clarify the meaning of, or requirements in, the order so that the parties can accurately prepare compliance filings;
(b) Make technical changes to reconcile the application of principle to data, resolve inconsistencies, or correct patent error without the need for parties to request reconsideration and without delaying post-order compliance; or
(c) Correct typographical or other ministerial errors.
(2) Motions that do not seek clarification. A party may not file a motion for clarification that seeks to change an outcome with respect to one or more issues resolved by a final order, or that challenges a finding of fact or conclusion of law stated in the order. A party seeking such commission action must submit a petition for reconsideration pursuant to WAC 480-07-850.
(3) Response. No party may file a response to a motion for clarification unless the commission requests a response.
(4) No tolling. Filing a motion for clarification does not toll the time for filing a petition for reconsideration of, or compliance with, the final order of which the party seeks clarification. If the commission enters an order that modifies the final order, the subsequent order will clarify the deadlines for compliance and will be a final order for purposes of further commission or judicial review.
