FCC Opens Rulemaking Proceeding Eliminating Broadcast License Posting Requirements

Posted on May 31st, 2018 by

The FCC continues to take great strides in reducing regulatory burdens for licensees (thankfully). At the recent May 10, 2018 meeting, the FCC issued a NPRM asking whether regulations requiring the physical posting of broadcast licenses and related authorizations at certain physical locations are outdated, unnecessary or unduly burdensome. With all of this information now readily available online in the FCC’s public databases, it seems the answer is clearly a resounding YES to it being outdated, unnecessary and unduly burdensome…similar to the recently eliminated Main Studio and public inspection file rules.
