§ 7-11-706. Declaratory orders and rulings.
(a) Any person may petition the director for a declaratory order as to the applicability to specified circumstances of a statute, rule, or order under this chapter. The director may issue a declaratory order in response to a petition for that order unless the director determines that the petition fails to comply with the director's rules or, if the order was issued, would substantially prejudice the rights of a person who would be a necessary party and does not consent to the determination of the matter by a declaratory order.
(b) The director, upon application by an interested party, may conduct a hearing and issue a declaratory ruling as to the applicability of this chapter or a rule or order of the director under this chapter to a person, security or transaction, or as to the meaning of a term used in this chapter.
