The State Corporation Commission’s (SCC) policy regarding public access to its records is to promote an increased awareness by all persons of the SCC’s activities. The SCC’s Division of Information Resources (IRD) coordinates public information for the SCC and handles information inquiries from the news media and the general public. Contact either Ken Schrad or Andy Farmer with general questions and records requests.
Obtaining Public Documents
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:

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 Tyler Building, 1300 East Main Street, in downtown Richmond. Normal working hours are from 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
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.
