Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule; confirmation of effective date.


On August 6, 2009, the Commission published a final rule adopting procedural rules to govern petitions for forbearance filed pursuant to section 10 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. One section within that document could not take effect until the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) had approved the associated information collection requirements. OMB approved those information collection requirements on April 5, 2010, under OMB Control Number 3060-1138. This document confirms the effective date of that rule.


47 CFR 1.54, published at 74 FR 39219, August 6, 2009, is effective March 28, 2011.

The Commission adopted that rule in its Forbearance Procedures Order. The rule is codified at 47 CFR 1.54. This notice confirms that the Commission received OMB approval for that collection on April 5, 2010 (OMB Control Number is 3060-1138).
