Guidelines for Filing Paper Documents
To enable the staff of the Office of the Secretary to provide faster and more efficient service, we urge you to follow these guidelines in preparing and submitting "uniform" paper filings.
Documents containing information to be withheld from public inspection should be clearly and conspicuously labeled "CONFIDENTIAL, NOT FOR PUBLIC INSPECTION." This designation should be placed in the upper right-hand corner of each page. If these instructions are not followed, the filer increases the risk for inadvertent disclosure of confidential information.
All filings should be in 12 point type or legibly written.
The filing package should consist of the original, unstapled document and the required number of copies.
If the filing is "self-explanatory," no transmittal letter is required. If explanatory information is included, a copy of the transmittal letter should be included with the original document and each copy of the filing.
Signatures should be original and placed above the typed or clearly printed name to ensure legibility.
It is advisable to include a contact name, address, and telephone number in the document.
When using a courier service for hand-delivered filings:
Except as otherwise specifically provided in the Commission's Rules (See Section 1.51), the number of documents to be filed is as follows:
