If you are enrolled in the Commissions electronic filing system you can choose to
have your account revoked at any time without penalty or detriment to an ongoing
proceeding. In order to revoke your account, however, you must file a notice to
do so with the Commission. The notice must include the information set forth at
Chapter 52 Pa Code 1.32(b)(6)(i). You must also notify, following proper service
requirements, all other parties involved in any active proceeding you currently
have before the Commission in order for the revocation to take effect.
From the effective date of successful revocation of your electronic filing system
account, your ability to file and serve documents electronically will cease and
you must serve all documents regarding your proceeding in paper form in accordance
with Commission service rules and regulations (Chapter 52 Pa Code sections 1.54, 1.55,
1.59). You will also receive service of all documents in the
Revoking your electronic filing system account is not the only manner in which an
account can be disabled. If the Commission finds that an individual, through their
account, has been abusing* the electronic filing privileges, it can cancel that
account and revoke the individuals ability to use the system after giving proper
notice to the account user. If the individual is a party to an active proceeding
at the time of revocation and has consented to receive electronic service, the individual
must serve the other parties to the proceeding with a notice of revocation.
* Abuse of the Commissions electronic filing privileges includes knowingly allowing
another person, not the owner of the account or an authorized agent of the owner,
to use the user ID and password, as well as knowingly engaging in actions that interfere
with the security of the electronic filing system, i.e., introducing viruses or
destructive programming into the system.
