A Note About Your Online Public Inspection File

Posted on April 30th, 2020 by

If you’ve recently logged in to or just accessed your station’s online public file, you may have noticed an “alert” banner notice at the top of the page noting that the FCC has implemented database caching on OPIF document uploads as of April 3, 2020 and that up to a one-hour delay may be experienced between when a file is uploaded and when it can be viewed.  The caching action has resulted in a much quicker response to the publicly available FCC public file page (it used to pause for 10 seconds or more).  On the other hand, for stations that have gotten into the habit of uploading a document and then checking the publicly accessible page to confirm the upload, your efforts may be frustrated for up to an hour while the cache process updates.
