§ 0.409   Commission policy on private printing of FCC forms.

   The Commission has established a policy regarding the printing of blank
   FCC forms by private companies if they elect to do so as a matter of
   expediency and convenience to their clients or consumers. The policy is
   as follows:

   (a) Blank FCC forms may be reproduced by private companies at their own
   expense provided the following conditions are met:

   (1) Use a printing process resulting in a product that is at least
   comparable in quality to the original document, without change to the
   page size, image size, configuration of pages, folds or perforations,
   and matching as closely as possible the paper weight, paper color and
   ink color.

   (2) Delete in its entirety any and all U.S. Government Printing Office
   (GPO) indicia that may appear in the margin(s).

   (3) If the printer wishes to identify a foreign country in which the
   forms are printed, a marginal notation must be added stating "No U.S.
   Government funds were used to print this document."

   (4) Do not add to the form any other symbol, word or phrase that might
   be construed as personalizing the form or advertising on it.

   (5) Except as specified above, do not delete from or add to any part of
   the form, or attach anything thereto.

   (6) Assure that the form being reproduced is an edition currently
   acceptable by the Commission, which will endeavor to keep the public
   advised of revisions to its forms, but cannot assume responsibility to
   the extent of eliminating any element of risk against the use of
   obsolete forms.

   (b) These guidelines do not apply to forms which respondents may wish
   to reproduce as completed facsimiles on automated equipment to satisfy
   application or report requirements. Requests for permission to submit
   such forms to the Commission should be addressed to the Office of
   Managing Director.
