Obtaining Commission Public Documents
The State Corporation Commission encourages all citizens to access its publicly available documents. Information inquiries from the general public and news media are coordinated by the Division of Information Resources. Please call 804-371-9141 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with general questions and records requests.
Current SCC case information (such as proceedings, orders, findings, and judgments) is available through the Commission’s online Docket Search feature. Public case documents may be printed or downloaded from Docket Search. To obtain official copies of documents, contact the Document Control Center of the SCC Clerk’s Office at 804-371-9838. You may order certified documents for a fee:
|Type of Request||Associated Fee|
|Noncertified Copy of Documents||1-25 pages - no charge
26-50 pages - $10
50+ pages - $20
|Certification of Documents||$6.00 per document in addition to the fee per page
You may visit the Document Control Center to review case documents. The Document Control Center is in the Clerk’s Office, on the 1st floor of the SCC's headquarters at 1300 East Main Street, in downtown Richmond. In-person access hours are from 8:30-10:30 a.m., Monday through Friday, or by appointment. Documents may be dropped off with the Security Staff on the first floor on weekdays anytime between 8:15 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Virginia laws specifically applicable to the SCC’s regulatory responsibilities govern the availability of records from the SCC’s various operating divisions.
Non-case documents will not be found on Docket Search. While operating divisions make some non-case documents available on the SCC website, most are housed within the division and, except as otherwise provided by law, such records are available upon request. Please directly contact the division in which a non-case document originates. For on-site visits to a division, an appointment should be made.
