A seller must notify the Commission through a Notice of Succession if the seller’s name changes, if the seller merges with another entity, or has its tariff adopted by another entity (18 C.F.R. § 35.16, Notices of Succession). If the seller’s name appears in any part of the text of its tariff, the notice is required to be submitted through the eTariff system as a Tariff Revision. However, if the tariff does not include the seller’s name, the seller can change the name associated with the tariff by updating its name in the company registration database.
