Industrial Commission of Ohio Releases New Filing Guidelines

COLUMBUS, OH — In an effort to increase efficiency and streamline its filing practices throughout the state, the Industrial Commission of Ohio (IC) has released new filing guidelines for submitting documents.

The filing tips can be found on the “Appeals Process” page of the IC’s website,

Every night, the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and the IC exchange imaged documents when there is a contested issue. Therefore, if a document has been filed at one agency, it is not necessary to file it with the other. Filing with both agencies clutters the electronic file with duplicate documents.

By following the new guidelines, ICON users will help ensure documents are placed into the correct electronic file on a timely basis and are available within 24-48 hours after submission.

For questions regarding the new filing guidelines or to request training, please call 1-800-521-2691.
