  §  78.22   Objections to applications.

   (a) Any party in interest may file a petition to deny any application
   (whether as originally filed or as amended) no later than thirty (30)
   days after issuance of a public notice of the acceptance for filing of
   any such application or amendment thereto. Petitions to deny shall
   contain specific allegations of fact sufficient to show that the
   petitioner is a party in interest and that a grant of the application
   would be prima facie inconsistent with the public interest,
   convenience, and necessity. Such allegations of fact shall, except for
   those of which official notice may be taken, be supported by affidavit
   of a person or persons with personal knowledge thereof.

   (b) The applicant may file an opposition to any petition to deny, and
   the petitioner may file a reply to such opposition (see § 1.45 of this
   chapter), in which allegations of fact or denials thereof shall be
   supported by affidavit of a person or persons with personal knowledge

   (c) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (a) of this section,
   before Commission action on any application for an instrument of
   authorization, any person may file informal objections to the grant.
   Such objections may be submitted in letter form (without extra copies)
   and shall be signed by the objector. The limitation on pleadings and
   time for filing pleadings provided for in § 1.45 of this chapter shall
   not be applicable to any objections duly filed pursuant to this

   [ 37 FR 15927 , Aug. 8, 1972, as amended at  50 FR 23421 , June 4, 1985]
