Needs and Uses: The required application and notifications will provide the Commission with useful information about spectrum usage and helps to ensure that licensees and lessees are complying with Commission interference and non-interference related policies and rules. Similar information and verification requirements have been used in the past for licensees operating under authorizations, and such requirements will serve to minimize interference, verify lessees are legally and technically qualified to hold licenses, and ensure compliance with Commission rules. The Commission sought and received emergency clearance for the FCC Form 603-T and their rules in January 2004. The Commission is now seeking extension (no change) for this information collection in order to obtain the full three year clearance.Start Signature
