(a)  Applications submitted for filing are dated upon receipt.  If found to be complete, the application will be accepted for filing. Applications failing to comply with the requirements of this part will not generally be accepted for filing.  In the case of minor defects as to completeness, the director may accept the application for filing with a request to the applicant for additional information.  A defective application will be returned to the applicant within 10 days following its receipt with a statement of the reason for not accepting the application for filing.  A defective application may be corrected and resubmitted for filing at any time; the director shall accept for filing any application upon resubmission by the applicant whether complete or not.

(b)  Accepting an application for filing does not preclude any subsequent request for additional information pursuant to .0114 of this Subchapter and has no bearing on whether the application will be accepted except as provided in General Statutes 90‑102(c) and (d).
