An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) that does not display a valid control number. Comments are requested concerning (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission's burden estimate; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Form No.: FCC Form 606.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Respondents: Individuals or households, business or other for-profit, not-for-profit institutions, and state, local or tribal government.

Number of Respondents: 429,000 respondents; 429,000 responses.

Estimated Time per Response: 1 hour.

Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits.

Total Annual Burden: 429,000 hours.

Total Annual Cost: N/A.

Privacy Act Impact Assessment: N/A.

Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: No sensitive information is requested. As noted in paragraph one of the supporting statement (OMB document required for submission and approval of information collections), this information collection may affect individuals or households. Any personally identifiable information that is submitted to the Commission is covered by a System of Records Notice (SORN), WTB-1 “Wireless Services Licensing Records.”

Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information collection (IC) to the OMB as an extension (no change in the reporting or third party disclosure requirements) during this comment period to obtain the full three-year clearance from them. There is no change in the estimated burden hours.

FCC Form 606 is used to associate a licensee's FCC Registration Number (FRN) to licensee's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau and/or Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau call signs and antenna registration numbers with the FCC and filed through the Commission's Universal Licensing System (ULS).

The FCC previously adopted a rule requiring a mandatory FCC Registration Number (FRN). This requirement became effective 12/03/01, for all parties and entities doing business with the Commission who file applications with ULS or register towers via Antenna Structure Registration (ASR). As a result of the Commission Registration Number (CORES) and the implementation of the FRN, several important changes occurred for filers of ULS and ASR. This requirement was to facilitate compliance with the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 (DCIA).

The information collected in the application will be used to populate the Universal Licensing System (ULS) for licensees and antenna structure registration owners who interact with ULS. This information will also be used to match records in the ULS database to the Collection System records to validate payment for application and Debt Collection Act purposes.
