§ 1.925   Waivers.

   (a) Waiver requests generally. The Commission may waive specific
   requirements of the rules on its own motion or upon request. The fees
   for such waiver requests are set forth in § 1.1102 of this part.

   (b) Procedure and format for filing waiver requests. (1) Requests for
   waiver of rules associated with licenses or applications in the
   Wireless Radio Services must be filed on FCC Form 601, 603, or 605.

   (2) Requests for waiver must contain a complete explanation as to why
   the waiver is desired. If the information necessary to support a waiver
   request is already on file, the applicant may cross-reference the
   specific filing where the information may be found.

   (3) The Commission may grant a request for waiver if it is shown that:

   (i) The underlying purpose of the rule(s) would not be served or would
   be frustrated by application to the instant case, and that a grant of
   the requested waiver would be in the public interest; or

   (ii) In view of unique or unusual factual circumstances of the instant
   case, application of the rule(s) would be inequitable, unduly
   burdensome or contrary to the public interest, or the applicant has no
   reasonable alternative.

   (4) Applicants requiring expedited processing of their request for
   waiver shall clearly caption their request for waiver with the words

   (c) Action on Waiver Requests. (i) The Commission, in its discretion,
   may give public notice of the filing of a waiver request and seek
   comment from the public or affected parties.

   (ii) Denial of a rule waiver request associated with an application
   renders that application defective unless it contains an alternative
   proposal that fully complies with the rules, in which event, the
   application will be processed using the alternative proposal as if the
   waiver had not been requested. Applications rendered defective may be
   dismissed without prejudice.
