AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

In this document, the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Office of Managing Director adopts final rules that change the addresses that regulatees, applicants and licensees use to submit, or file, certain applications and payments to the Commission. These non-substantive, non-controversial rule amendments are necessary to reflect a recent change by the Commission in the bank providing the Commission's lockbox service, ensuring continued processing of future applications and fees. This Order also makes several non-substantive changes to the Commission's fee provisions.

DATES:

Effective February 19, 2008.

Final Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 Analysis

The rules contained herein have been analyzed with respect to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 and found to contain no new or modified form, information collection and/or recordkeeping, labeling, disclosure, or record retention requirements, and will not increase or decrease burden hours imposed on the public. Finally, because these amendments to our rules are adopted without notice and comment, no regulatory flexibility analysis is required.

Congressional Review Act

Because the adopted rules are rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice that do not “substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties,” the Commission will not send a copy of the Report and Order in a report to Congress and the Government Accountability Office pursuant to the Congressional Review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).

Synopsis of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

Amendment of Parts 0, 1, 2, 61, 64, and 80 of the Commission's Rules, Concerning Commission Organization, Practice and Procedure, Frequency Allocations and Radio Treaty Matters; General Rules and Regulations, and Stations in the Maritime Services.

This Order amends the Commission's rules to change the name and address that regulatees, applicants and licensees use to submit, or file, certain applications and payments to the Commission. These non-substantive, non-controversial rule amendments are necessary to reflect a recent change by the Commission in the bank providing the Commission's lockbox service, ensuring continued processing of future applications and fees. The changes affect rules governing Commission Organization (47 CFR Part 0), Practice and Procedure (47 CFR Part 1), Frequency Allocations and Radio Treaty Matters; General Rules and Regulations (47 CFR Part 2), Tariffs (47 CFR Part 61), Miscellaneous Rules Relating to Common Carriers (47 CFR Part 64), Radio Broadcast Services (47 CFR Part 73), and Stations in the Maritime Services (47 CFR Part 80). Specifically, this Order corrects bank addresses in several provisions of sections 0.401(b), 0.482, 1.80(h), 1.227(b), 1.907, 1.1102, 1.1103, 1.1104, 1.1105, 1.1106, 1.1107, 1.1152, 1.1153, 1.1154, 1.1155, 1.1156, 1.1166(d), 1.10001, 1.10009, 2.913(b), 61.14(b), 61.17(b), 61.20(b), 61.32(b), 61.153(b), 64.709(d), and 80.59(c) of the Commission's Rules, 47 CFR 0.401(b), 0.482, 1.80(h), 1.227(b), 1.907, 1.1102, 1.1103, 1.1104, 1.1105, 1.1106, 1.1107, 1.1152, 1.1153, 1.1154, 1.1155, 1.1156, 1.1166(d), 1.10001, 1.10009, 2.913(b), 61.14, 61.17, 61.20, 61.32, 61.153, 64.709, and 80.59(c). This Order also makes several non-substantive changes to the Commission's fee provisions to correct inadvertent errors to payment codes.

In order to provide a fair and sufficient transition period to allow filers to become familiar with the address changes in the rules, we provide that for forty-five days after publication in the Federal Register, fees, applications, and other filings erroneously submitted by parties to the former lockbox bank shall be forwarded automatically to the new bank at the address listed in the rules. In addition, during this transition period, the date that such fees, applications, and other filings are date-stamped as received by the former lockbox bank shall be deemed to be the official filing date of such submissions.

The rule amendments set forth in the attached Appendix relate to agency practice and procedure, and make minor, non-controversial procedural changes that do not raise issues upon which public notice and comment is necessary or would serve any useful purpose. Furthermore, since these amendments merely reflect procedural changes in the bank and addresses to which filings must be submitted, and the Commission has provided by rule the 45-day transition period to allow filers to become aware of the procedural change, good cause exists for adoption of these rule amendments without affording notice and comment. Start Printed Page 9018Authority for this action is set forth in the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (B).[1]

Finally, because the Commission has provided a 45-day transition period before a filer will be penalized for not using the correct address, good cause has been shown for these rule changes to become effective February 19, 2008 on the date of publication in the Federal Register. See 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3); 47 CFR 1.427(b). This will allow parties who are aware of the new address to begin using it without delay, while avoiding any prejudice to those who learn of the change when it is published in the Federal Register.

Ordering Clauses

Accordingly, It is hereby ordered that, pursuant to the authority contained in Sections 4(i) and 303(r) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i) and 303(r), and section 0.231(b) of the Commission's regulations, 47 CFR 0.231(b), Parts 0, 1, 2, 61, 64, 73, and 80 of the Commission's rules are amended as set forth in the attached Appendix.

It is further ordered that these amendments are effective February 19, 2008. See section 553(d)(3) of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3).

It is further ordered that the Secretary shall cause a copy of this Order to be published in the Federal Register.

What are the steps for electronic filing?

(a) Step 1: Register for an FCC Registration Number (FRN). (See Subpart W, §§ 1.8001 through 1.8004.)

(1) If you already have an FRN, go to Step 2.

(2) In order to process your electronic application, you must have an FRN. You may obtain an FRN either directly from the Commission Registration System (CORES) at http://www.fcc.gov/​e-file/​, or through IBFS as part of your filing process. If you need to know more about who needs an FRN, visit CORES at http://www.fcc.gov/​e-file/​.

(3) If you are a(n):

(i) Applicant,

(ii) Transferee and assignee,

(iii) Transferor and assignor,

(iv) Licensee/Authorization Holder, or

(v) Payer, you are required to have and use an FRN when filing applications and/or paying fees through IBFS.

(4) We use your FRN to give you secured access to IBFS and to pre-fill the application you file.

(b) Step 2: Register with IBFS.

(1) If you are already registered with IBFS, go to Step 3.

(2) In order to complete and file your electronic application, you must register in IBFS, located at http://www.fcc.gov/​ibfs.

(3) You can register your account in:

(i) Your name,

(ii) Your company's name, or

(iii) Your client's name.

(4) IBFS will issue you an account number as part of the registration process. You will create your own password. Start Printed Page 9030

(5) If you forget your password, send an e-mail to the IBFS helpline at ibfsinfo@fcc.gov or contact the helpline at (202) 418-2222 for assistance.

(c) Step 3: Log into IBFS, select the application you want to file, provide the required FRN(s) and password(s) and fill out your application. You must completely fill out forms and provide all requested information as provided in parts 1, 25, 63 and 64 of this chapter.

(1) You must provide an address where you can receive mail delivery by the United States Postal Service. You are also encouraged to provide an e-mail address. This information is used to contact you regarding your application and to request additional documentation, if necessary.

(2) Reference to material on file. You must answer questions on application forms that call for specific technical data, or that require yes or no answers or other short answers. However, if documents or other lengthy showings are already on file with us and contain the required information, you may incorporate the information by reference, as long as:

(i) The referenced information is filed in IBFS or, if manually filed, the information is more than one “81/2 inch by 11 inch” page.

(ii) The referenced information is current and accurate in all material respects; and

(iii) The application states where we can find the referenced information as well as:

(A) The application file number, if the reference is to previously-filed applications

(B) The title of the proceeding, the docket number, and any legal citation, if the reference is to a docketed proceeding.

(d) Step 4: File your application. If you file your application successfully through IBFS, a confirmation screen will appear showing you the date and time of your filing and your submission ID. Print this verification for your records as proof of online filing.

(e) Step 5: Pay for your application.

(1) Most applications require that you pay a fee to us before we can begin processing your application. You can determine the amount of your fee in three ways:

(i) You can refer to § 1.1107,

(ii) You can refer to the International and Satellite Services fee guide located at http://www.fcc.gov/​fees/​appfees.html, or

(iii) You can run a draft Form 159 through IBFS, in association with a filed application, and the system will automatically enter your required fee on the form.

(2) A complete FCC Form 159 must accompany all fee payments. You must provide the FRN for both the applicant and the payer. You also must include your IBFS Submission ID number on your FCC Form 159 in the box labeled “FCC Code 2.” In addition, for applications for transfer of control or assignment of license, call signs involved in the transaction must be entered into the “FCC Code 1” box on the FCC Form 159. (This may require the use of multiple rows on the FCC Form 159 for a single application where more than one call sign is involved.)

(i) You may use a paper version of FCC Form 159, or

(ii) You can generate a pre-filled FCC Form 159 from IBFS using your IBFS Submission ID. For specific instructions on using IBFS to generate your FCC Form 159, go to the IBFS Web site (http://www.fcc.gov/​ibfs) and click on the “Getting Started” button.

(3) You have 3 payment options:

(i) Pay by credit card (through IBFS or by regular mail),

(ii) Pay by check, bank draft or money order, or

(iii) Pay by wire transfer or other electronic payments.

(4) You have 14 calendar days from the date you file your application in IBFS to submit your fee payment to U.S. Bank. Your FCC Form 159 must be stamped “received” by U.S. Bank by the 14th day. If not, we will dismiss your application.

(5) If you send your Form 159 and payment to U.S. Bank in paper form, you should mail your completed Form 159 and payment to the address specified in § 1.1107 of the Commission's rules. If you file electronically, do not send copies of your application with your payment and Form 159.

(6) For more information on fee payments, refer to Payment Instructions found on the IBFS Internet site at http://www.fcc.gov/​ibfs.

(7) Step 5 is not applicable if your application is fee exempt.
