FAQs for Filing KCC Forms Electronically

How does an operator sign up for online filing of KCC forms through KOLAR?

A company's authorized agent must complete and mail the Master Electronic Filing Certification form to the KCC, which includes the appointment of an Electronic Filing Administrator.

Who is the operator's authorized agent?

If the operator is an individual, the individual is the authorized agent. One of the general partners is the authorized agent for a partnership. For incorporated entities (e.g., a limited liability company), the authorized agent is the president or, for larger entities, a regional supervisor or manager. The attorney of the authorized agent may sign on the authorized agent's behalf.

What address should I indicate for the authorized agent?

The address where the authorized agent may be reached should be provided, even if the authorized agent's address is different from the address submitted on the operator's licensing application.

I am the designated Electronic Filing Administrator for a company. How should I proceed in this capacity?

Once the KCC approves the Master Electronic Filing Certification Form and the Appointment of Electronic Filing Administrator, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address provided for both the authorized agent and the designated Electronic Filing Administrator. The Electronic Filing Administrator will then create an account on KOLAR by following the instructions on Page 3 of the form. The KCC will provide the Electronic Filing Administrator with the permissions needed to add users to their company and to assign specific electronic filing rights for those users. The KCC will also send instructions to the Electronic Filing Administrator on how to do this.
