On February 11, 2013, FERC staff posted a small update to the list of Validation Error Codes that the Commission provides on its eTariff webpage. The changes are summarized below.
The most significant change was to error code 120 which used to read “For an Amendment Compliance Withdrawn or Motion filing Associated Filing Identifier cannot be a Report Withdraw or Motion filing” and now reads “For an Amendment Compliance Withdraw Report or Motion filing Associated Filing Identifier cannot be a Report Withdraw or Motion filing”. Essentially, the Commission is clarifying that a Report-type filing (note the highlighted word) may not be associated with a Report-type, Withdraw-type, or Motion-type filing.
Mistakenly, error code 158’s description was a copy of 159. Error code 158 has been corrected to read “If provided the tariff record’s Record Binary Data RTF file is not well-formatted”.
Finally, a typographical error was corrected in the description of error code 121.
