New Tower Rules Not Effective Yet

Posted on September 22nd, 2014 by

Tower owners have a little more time to become familiar with and prepare for the FCC’s streamlined and revised tower regulations. Though adopted in early August 2014, the rules do not go into effect until 30 days after the FCC publishes a notice in the Federal Register. So breathe easy for now, and take another glance at the rule revisions to be sure your towers are in compliance. One or two of the rule revisions will require approval of new information collection, so those will take longer to become effective. But most of the rules will take effect on the 30th day after Federal Register publication. We’ll keep watching for it and tell you about it here.
