    Default report must be made filed to the competent authority

    The environmental impact assessment report must be made filed to the competent authority for approval together with the feasibility study of the project.

    Is made redundant here? I think it must be "must be filed to" or "must be made to file to".
    Thank for help.

    "Must be filed" or "must be made." It's an error.

    Filed with, as well. (Not "filed to")

    I've been the victim of this myself. You start to say it one way. You change to the other. You forget to go back and fix it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I am confused about this. Can you explain why we use "filed with" here?
    I think "file for" is appropriate in this case.
    Is this right?

    I wouldn't use "filed" there, of the two, I would use "made".

    No, you file it with the regulatory agency.

    It goes into their files. It is with them.
