A pro forma assignee or a carrier that is the subject of a pro forma transfer of control is not required to seek prior Commission approval for the transaction. A pro forma assignee must notify the Commission no later than 30 days after the assignment is consummated. The notification may be in the form of a letter (in duplicate to the Secretary), and it must contain a certification that the assignment was pro forma as defined in paragraph (a) of this section and, together with all previous pro forma transactions, does not result in a change of the carrier's ultimate control. A single letter may be filed for an assignment of more than one authorization if each authorization is identified by the file number under which it was granted.
