Applications must be filed on 8-1/2 by 11-inch paper except for drawings, illustrations, maps, and similar materials. The date of preparation and the applicant's name must appear on each document filed with the application.
Any change or correction made to the application after filing must comply with subparts 2 and 6.

The applicant shall send copies of changed or corrected pages to all persons required by subpart 6 and part 7852.0600, subpart 2, item C.
The commission shall accept, conditionally accept, or reject an application at its first regularly scheduled meeting after the application is filed with the commission, provided the application is filed at least 21 days before that meeting. The commission may conditionally accept or reject an application, but in both instances the commission shall inform the applicant which deficiencies, if corrected, will allow the application to be accepted. If an applicant has corrected the deficiencies or provided the commission with the deficient information 14 days in advance of a regularly scheduled commission meeting, the commission must reconsider acceptance of the application at that meeting. If the commission fails to act at the first scheduled meeting after the application is filed, the application is considered accepted. On acceptance or conditional acceptance of the application, the commission and the applicant shall initiate the actions required by part 7852.0600, subpart 2, or 7852.0900, as applicable. After acceptance of an application, the applicant shall provide any additional relevant information the commission considers necessary to process the application.
