Electronic Case Filing (ECF)

Court documents filed on or after March 21, 2022 are in the ECF system.

Legacy Imaging System

Court documents filed prior to March 21, 2022 can still be found in the Imaging system.

The Commission has two case information search tools:

  • The Electronic Case Filing system, for case information and documents filed on or after March 21, 2022; and,
  • The Case Processing system, for case information and documents filed prior to March 21, 2022.

Both systems allow you to search a variety of fields, including party name, party type, case type, relief sought, and filing date; and both systems link to filed case documents that you can view and download. Follow the links below for more information.

Electronic Case Filing (ECF)

Case information and documents filed on or after March 21, 2022 are in the ECF system.

Legacy Case Processing

Case information and links to documents filed prior to March 21, 2022 can still be found in the Case Processing System.

Any protestant should begin by reviewing the documentation received about the case, the CD Application and Notice. 

Any person or legal representative can protest by filing a pleading or sending a letter of protest to the Regional Service Office prior to the date of hearing. The letter will be filed and is a public record. It should list the cause number, applicant's name, legal description, type of protestant, and a clear statement of protest to the relief requested. 

A copy of this letter should be mailed to the applicant's contact person and attorney listed in the CD Notice. 

If a formal response to the application is not filed, then two important points should be understood:

  • Forwarding an e-mail complaint through the Consumer Service Division's complaint form will not be sufficient to protest the application.
  • When a party sends in a letter but does not appear in person or by telephone to take further action, it is OAP's practice to consider the letter as an added issue for the applicant's representative expert witness to address.
  • On the date of the initial docket call, the protestant will announce the protest by the following recommended steps:
  • Appear yourself or through a legal representative at a Regional Service
  • If you are unable to appear in person, please call the Court Clerk Staff between 8:00-8:30 a.m. on the morning of the initial docket. Call OAP in Oklahoma City at (405)521-2352 or (405)521-4457, or OAP in Tulsa at (918)581-2296. Request the name of the ALJ and tell the ALJ you are protesting the Cause.
  • Announcing a protest means the matter will be rescheduled on a protest docket date.

Commission rules are on our website.

Select either OCC Rules, Proposed Rules or Emergency Rules

With the permission of the ALJ a party may participate in a hearing by telephone, if the other parties to the case agree to such procedure. 

The telephone call must be placed at the telephonic party's expense unless the connection is made from one of the Commission's Regional Service Offices to the other (not from a District Office.)

Please contact the Court Reporter Supervisor at the Oklahoma City office, (405) 522-0490. 

You will need to provide the Cause Number and the hearing date. The correct reporter will be notified of the transcript order.

Proposed order templates are available in both Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF.

Note that the process for submitting proposed orders has not changed as a result of the transition to the Commission's new Electronic Case Filing system.

Transition to Electronic Case Filing has begun!

The Commission's new Electronic Case Filing (ECF) system went live on March 21, 2022, and all filers are encouraged to register and file cases online in ECF.

During the transition, traditional in-person and email filing methods will remain available. For more information, please contact the Court Clerk at (405) 521-2352 or CourtClerk@occ.ok.gov.


If you are represented by an attorney in a matter before the Commission, it is a violation of the Oklahoma Rules of Professional Conduct for a Commission lawyer to speak with you about your case without your attorney being present. Please contact your legal counsel.

Oklahoma Corporation Commission attorneys are prohibited from providing legal advice to non-OCC employees concerning any matter that is or may come before the Commission but may answer general questions about Commission rules and procedures.
