Needs and Uses: The purpose of this collection is to streamline the set of rules which minimize filing requirements via the Universal Licensing System (ULS); to eliminate redundant and unnecessary submission requirements; and to assure ongoing collection of reliable licensing and ownership data. The recordkeeping and third party disclosure requirements, along with certifications which made via the ULS FCC Form 601 are two ways the Commission reduced the filing burdens in the industry. However, applicants must maintain records to document compliance with the requirements for which they provide certification. In some instances third party coordination's are required.Start Signature
