Effective Date of Revised Filing Requirements for Station Documents

On October 23, 2018, the Commission adopted a Report and Order (Order) eliminating the
requirement that licensees and permittees of commercial and noncommercial AM, FM, television, and
international broadcast stations routinely file with the Commission paper copies of the station documents
specified in Section 73.3613 of the Commission’s rules. As discussed in the Order, commercial and
noncommercial AM, FM, and television stations must continue to either (i) upload the documents directly
to the online public inspection file (OPIF) or (ii) maintain an up-to-date list of the documents in the OPIF
and provide copies to requesting parties within seven days.
