§ 1.93   Consent orders.

   (a) As used in this subpart, a "consent order" is a formal decree
   accepting an agreement between a party to an adjudicatory hearing
   proceeding held to determine whether that party has violated statutes
   or Commission rules or policies and the appropriate operating Bureau,
   with regard to such party's future compliance with such statutes, rules
   or policies, and disposing of all issues on which the proceeding was
   designated for hearing. The order is issued by the officer designated
   to preside at the hearing or (if no officer has been designated) by the
   Chief Administrative Law Judge.

   (b) Where the interests of timely enforcement or compliance, the nature
   of the proceeding, and the public interest permit, the Commission, by
   its operating Bureaus, may negotiate a consent order with a party to
   secure future compliance with the law in exchange for prompt
   disposition of a matter subject to administrative adjudicative
   proceedings. Consent orders may not be negotiated with respect to
   matters which involve a party's basic statutory qualifications to hold
   a license (see 47 U.S.C. 308 and 309).
