  §  1.2   Declaratory rulings.

   (a) The Commission may, in accordance with section 5(d) of the
   Administrative Procedure Act, on motion or on its own motion issue a
   declaratory ruling terminating a controversy or removing uncertainty.

   (b) The bureau or office to which a petition for declaratory ruling has
   been submitted or assigned by the Commission should docket such a
   petition within an existing or current proceeding, depending on whether
   the issues raised within the petition substantially relate to an
   existing proceeding. The bureau or office then should seek comment on
   the petition via public notice. Unless otherwise specified by the
   bureau or office, the filing deadline for responsive pleadings to a
   docketed petition for declaratory ruling will be 30 days from the
   release date of the public notice, and the default filing deadline for
   any replies will be 15 days thereafter.
