Certain Broadcast Forms Transitioned to LMS

Posted on September 30th, 2019 by

As of September 25, 2019, the FCC’s Media Bureau transitioned seven broadcast station application forms from CDBS to the new License Management System (LMS), which requires login using a station’s FRN and password.

Forms 301, 302, 318, 319, 340, 349 and 350 are now only available for filing in LMS, and are identified as “schedules” to the main application form. When selected, the form contains several screens for completion, each requiring a green “check mark” before filing is possible. Selecting the “submit” button at the end results in automatic submission, and if any fee is due, options are available for selection after the form is submitted.

In coming months, additional forms will be transitioned to LMS until it is the sole filing system used by broadcast licensees.
