1 An ex parte decision is one in which the Commission disposes of an application solely on the basis of the applicant's submissions. Section 61(3) of the Telecommunications Act allows the Commission to make an ex parte decision where it considers that the circumstances of the case justify it. In Review of regulatory framework, Telecom Decision CRTC 94-19, 16 September 1994, the Commission set out several considerations to be balanced in any determination to permit ex parte tariff filings, including the public interest in the effective operation of the competitive marketplace and the public interest in an open regulatory process.
