FCC 1.955 Revised as of December 4, 2012
Goto Year:2011 |
§ 1.955 Termination of authorizations.
(a) Authorizations in general remain valid until terminated in
accordance with this section, except that the Commission may revoke an
authorization pursuant to section 312 of the Communications Act of
1934, as amended. See 47 U.S.C. 312.
(1) Expiration . Authorizations automatically terminate, without
specific Commission action, on the expiration date specified therein,
unless a timely application for renewal is filed. See § 1.949 of this
part. No authorization granted under the provisions of this part shall
be for a term longer than ten years, except to the extent a longer term
is authorized under § 27.13 of part 27 of this chapter.
(2) Failure to meet construction or coverage requirements.
Authorizations automatically terminate (in whole or in part as set
forth in the service rules), without specific Commission action, if the
licensee fails to meet applicable construction or coverage
requirements. See § 1.946(c).
(3) Service discontinued. Authorizations automatically terminate,
without specific Commission action, if service is permanently
discontinued. The Commission authorization or the individual service
rules govern the definition of permanent discontinuance for purposes of
this section. A licensee who discontinues operations shall notify the
Commission of the discontinuance of operations by submitting FCC Form
601 or 605 requesting license cancellation.
(b) Special temporary authority (STA) automatically terminates without
specific Commission action upon failure to comply with the terms and
conditions therein, or at the end of the period specified therein,
unless a timely request for an extension of the STA term is filed in
accordance with § 1.931 of this part. If a timely filed request for
extension of the STA term is dismissed or denied, the STA automatically
terminates, without specific Commission action, on the day after the
applicant or the applicant's attorney is notified of the Commission's
action dismissing or denying the request for extension.
(c) Authorizations submitted by licensees for cancellation terminate
when the Commission gives Public Notice of such action.
