All other applications. We consider all other applications officially
filed once you file the application in IBFS and applicable filing fees
are received and approved by the FCC, unless the application is
determined to be fee-exempt. We determine your official filing date
based on one of the following situations:
1. You file your Satellite Space Station Application (other than DBS
and DARS) or your Application for Earth Stations to Access a Non-U.S.
Satellite Not Currently Authorized to provide the Proposed Service in
the Proposed Frequencies in the United States in IBFS Your official
filing date is the date and time (to the millisecond) you file your
application and receive a confirmation of filing and submission ID.
2. You file all other applications in IBFS and then do one of the
following: Your official filing date is:
Send your payment (via check, bank draft, money order, credit card, or
wire transfer) and FCC Form 159 to U.S. Bank The date U.S. Bank stamps
your payment as received.
Pay by online credit card (through IBFS) The date your online credit
card payment is approved. (Note: You will receive a remittance ID and
an authorization number if your transaction is successful).
Determine your application type is fee-exempt or your application
qualifies for exemption to charges as provided in Part 1 of the
Commission's Rules The date you file in IBFS and receive a confirmation
of filing and submission ID.
Application. A request for an earth or space station radio station
license, an international cable landing license, or an international
service authorization, or a request to amend a pending application or
to modify or renew licenses or authorizations. The term also includes
the other requests that may be filed in IBFS such as transfers of
control and assignments of license applications, earth station
registrations, and foreign carrier affiliation notifications.
Authorizations. Generally, a written document or oral statement issued
by us giving authority to operate or provide service.
International Bureau Filing System. The International Bureau Filing
System (IBFS) is a database, application filing system, and processing
system for all International and Satellite services. IBFS supports
electronic filing of many applications and related documents in the
International Bureau, and provides public access to this information.
International Services. All international services authorized under
parts 1, 63 and 64 of this chapter.
Official Filing Date.
Satellite Space Station Applications (other than DBS and DARS) and
Applications for Earth Stations to Access a Non-U.S. Satellite Not
Currently Authorized to Provide the Proposed Service in the Proposed
Frequencies in the United States. We consider a Satellite Space Station
application (other than DBS and DARS) and an Application for an Earth
Station to Access a Non-U.S. Satellite Not Currently Authorized to
Provide the Proposed Service in the Proposed Frequencies in the United
States officially filed the moment you file them through IBFS. The
system tracks the date and time of filing (to the millisecond). For
purposes of the queue discussed in § 25.158 of this chapter, we will
base the order of the applications in the queue on the date and time
the applications are filed, rather than the "Official Filing Date" as
Satellite Services. All satellite services authorized under part 25 of
Submission ID. The Submission ID is the confirmation number you receive
from IBFS once you have successfully filed your application. It is also
the number we use to match your filing to your payment. Your IBFS
Submission ID will always start with the letters "IB" and include the
year in which you file as well as a sequential number, (e.g.,
Us. In this subpart, "us" refers to the Commission.
We. In this subpart, "we" refers to the Commission.
You. In this subpart, "you" refers to applicants, licensees, your
representatives, or other entities authorized to provide services.
