RE:  Part 1 applications by Iris Technologies Inc. and TELUS Communications Inc. - Procedural matter

Dear Sirs,

On 20 August 2018, Commission staff issued a letter informing that the above referenced applications will be considered together since the issues raised in both applications are interrelated. Commission staff also set the process which allowed Iristel Technologies Inc. (Iristel) and TELUS Communications Inc. (TCI) to file their reply comments to interventions by 20 September 2018.

Since 20 September 2018, the Commission has received additional letters from Iristel and TCI in which the companies have either made procedural requests pertaining to new evidence that may have been filed by the other party, submitted comments on the other party’s procedural requests, or additional comments on information received thus far. Commission staff also notes Iristel’s letter dated 26 September 2018 in which the company submitted it was filing additional evidence as part of its application.

In a separate upcoming communication, Commission staff will set out the next procedural steps for both applications including the treatment of any possible new evidence and procedural requests received by the Commission after 20 September 2018. In the meantime, it is requested that parties not file additional information, responses, or procedural request on these two files until Commission staff clarifies the next procedural steps and associated timelines.
