52 Pa. Code § 1.13. Issuance of Commission orders.

§ 1.13. Issuance of Commission orders.

 (a)  In computing a period of time involving the date of the issuance of an order by the Commission, the day of issuance of an order will be the date the Secretary enters the order. An order will not be made public prior to its entry except where, in the Commission’s judgment, the public interest so requires. The date of entry of an order may or may not be the day of its adoption by the Commission. The Secretary will clearly indicate on each order the date of its adoption by the Commission and the date of its entry.

 (b)  At the time a decision of a presiding officer becomes effective as an adjudication of the Commission in the absence of Commission review as provided for in section 332(h) of the act (relating to procedures in general) the Secretary will issue and serve upon the parties of record an appropriate notice of the date the adjudication became effective as a Commission order.

 (c)  The date of entry of an order which is subject to review by Commonwealth Court is governed by Pa.R.A.P. No. 108. The date of issuance of any other order shall be deemed to be the date of entry for the purposes of computing the time for appeal under an applicable statute relating to judicial review of Commission action.

 (d)  Subsections (a) and (b) are identical to 1 Pa. Code §  31.13 (relating to issuance of agency orders).
