Respondents: Business or other for-profit.

Number of Respondents: 100 respondents; 540 responses.

Needs and Uses: The Commission released a Report and Order (63 FR 68904) which consolidated, revised, and streamlined the Commission's rules governing license application procedures for radio services licensed by the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB). This Report and Order also adopted new consolidated application forms which enable all wireless licensees and applicants to file applications electronically using the Universal Licensing System (ULS). (The individual application forms have separate OMB approval.) The actions in this proceeding eliminated a large number of unnecessary rules and duplicative forms. The information requested provides the Commission with technical, operational and licensing data for private mobile radio service licensees that have been reclassified as commercial mobile radio service providers. This information is necessary to ensure that licensees comply with the Commission's technical, operational and licensing rules.
