Obtaining Public DocumentsThe 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 contact either Ken Schrad or Andy Farmer 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 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. Normal working hours are from 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
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.
