I - A rate increase;
R - A rate reduction;
C - Changed condition or regulation;
K - That material has been transferred to another sheet in the tariff. (A footnote is required on the tariff sheet to identify the material's new sheet number);
M - That material has been transferred from another sheet in the tariff. (A footnote is required on the tariff sheet to identify the material's former sheet number);
T - A change in text for clarification;
O - no change. (This symbol is discretionary unless specifically requested by the commission); and
(c) May use additional symbols for other purposes when it has identified the symbols in its tariff as provided for in WAC 480-80-102(3).
(5) A utility must not give effect to revised tariff sheets until the commission approves the tariff filing by issuing an order or the new or changed provisions become effective by operation of law.
(6) When a tariff sheet(s) becomes effective, the commission will return one copy of the transmittal letter and one copy of each tariff sheet to the utility marked with the receipt date.
(7) The commission may require a utility to refile the tariff in its entirety should circumstances warrant it.
(8) If the commission issues an order directing a utility to refile all or a portion of its tariff, the utility must refile, marking each affected sheet with the docket number.
