Electronic Filing Requirements

The Florida Public Service Commission recognizes that electronic filing facilitates quick and easy access of records and that many electronic records are “born digital” and there is no paper counterpart. The Commission has made available for e-filing an electronic filing form. This e-filing method is available from the Commission's website at, by selecting the Clerk’s Office link and Electronic Filing Web Form. This application accepts documents in Adobe PDF format only. The Commission strongly encourages e-filing and may transition to mandatory e-filing in the future. The potential benefit to e-filers in paper reduction, postage savings, and elimination of delivery costs is substantial.

Filings must be submitted so that they are properly oriented to be read without needing to be rotated. Documents accepted for filing will have the Document Number (DN) and a date/time stamp electronically affixed to the upper right-hand corner of the first page of the document. Filers should leave a space of approximately 1x2 inches on the upper right-hand corner of the first page for Clerk's Office use.

The filing party is responsible for ensuring that no information protected by privacy or confidentiality laws is contained in any document that would be posted to the Commission's website in the regular course of business.

Tariffs have different e-filing procedures, available on the Commission's website by selecting Utility Regulation, Telecommunications, and E-Tariff Information.

Documents ineligible for e-filing include those that:
  • are identified as ineligible in the Order Establishing Procedure,
  • contain proprietary confidential business information,
  • must be accompanied by a fee or payment, and
  • Adobe PDF files greater than 500 MB or Acrobat portfolio files.
How do I e-file?
  • Convert the document to Adobe PDF. Note that cover letters and/or certificates of service must be included in the relevant PDF document and that "s/" or "/s/" are recognized as electronic signatures.
  • Access the Electronic Filing Form link. Fill in the blanks, attach the PDF document to be filed, and click SUBMIT (Only one submission per filing.)
What happens next?
  • You will receive an automatic acknowledgement that the document has been received. The filer shall contact the Office of Commission Clerk at or 850.413.6770 if this acknowledgement is not received.
  • The Clerk's Office processes documents in the order received.
  • You will be notified if the document submitted does not meet the filing requirements.
