EFFECTIVE DATE OF NEW FCC CABLE ONLINE PUBLIC FILE RULES

Articles / May 13, 2016

In a Public Notice released on May 12, 2016, the FCC reports that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved the Commission’s new cable television online public file requirements and that OMB’s action will be published in the Federal Register on May 25.  Assuming Federal Register publication on that date, and as the FCC announced in its January 28 Report and Order adopting the new rules, the effective date of these new online public file rules will be thirty (30) days from the publication of OMB’s action in the Federal Register, i.e., June 24, 2016.  The FCC Public Notice briefly summarizes the new rules as well as announces that it will hold a Webinar at a later date.  Please refer to our February 4, 2016 publication summarizing the Commission’s Report and Order in greater detail if you would like a more complete explanation of the new online recordkeeping and filing requirements.
