Procedure for applications subject to objection, information required of applicant and objecting company.

(1) The commission will consider applications for which an objection has been received through brief adjudicative proceedings under WAC 480-07-610, unless the presiding officer determines, based on the facts and circumstances presented, that a hearing or different process is required.
(2) After one or more companies file an objection to an application, the commission will issue a notice of brief adjudication to the objecting company and the applicant, and request the filing of additional information to determine the nature of the objection proceeding. This information may include, but is not limited to:
(a) Statements from independent witnesses provided by an objecting company to demonstrate that the objecting company is providing the same service as the proposed service, to the satisfaction of the commission.
(b) Statements from independent witnesses provided by an objecting company to demonstrate that the traveling public will be harmed by the granting of the application.
(c) Additional supplementary information, evidence or testimony provided by the applicant to demonstrate that public convenience and necessity requires the proposed service.
(3) In considering an objection filed by a company holding a certificate, the commission will determine whether or not the objecting company will provide the same service to the satisfaction of the commission.
(a) If the commission determines that the objecting company holds a certificate to provide the same service in the same territory, that the service is the same as proposed in the application, and that the objecting company is providing the same service to the satisfaction of the commission, the commission will not issue a certificate.
(b) If the commission determines that the objecting company will not provide the same service to the satisfaction of the commission, the commission may grant the application.
