  § 76.1502   Certification.

   (a) An operator of an open video system must certify to the Commission
   that it will comply with the Commission's regulations in 47 CFR
   76.1503, 76.1504, 76.1506(m), 76.1508, 76.1509, and 76.1513. The
   Commission must approve such certification prior to the commencement of
   service at such a point in time that would allow the applicant
   sufficient time to comply with the Commission's notification
   requirements.

   (b) Certifications must be verified by an officer or director of the
   applicant, stating that, to the best of his or her information and
   belief, the representations made therein are accurate.

   (c) Certifications must be filed on FCC Form 1275 and must include:

   (1) The applicant's name, address and telephone number;

   (2) A statement of ownership, including all affiliated entities;

   (3) If the applicant is a cable operator applying for certification in
   its cable franchise area, a statement that the applicant is qualified
   to operate an open video system under Section 76.1501.

   (4) A statement that the applicant agrees to comply and to remain in
   compliance with each of the Commission's regulations in § § 76.1503,
   76.1504, 76.1506(m), 76.1508, 76.1509, and 76.1513;

   (5) If the applicant is required under 47 CFR 64.903(a) of this chapter
   to file a cost allocation manual, a statement that the applicant will
   file changes to its manual at least 60 days before the commencement of
   service;

   (6) A list of the names of the anticipated local communities to be
   served upon completion of the system;

   (7) The anticipated amount and type (i.e., analog or digital) of
   capacity (for switched digital systems, the anticipated number of
   available channel input ports); and

   (8) A statement that the applicant will comply with the Commission's
   notice and enrollment requirements for unaffiliated video programming
   providers.

   (d)(1) All open video system certification applications, including FCC
   Form 1275 and all attachments, must be filed via electronic mail
   (email) at the following address: OVS@fcc.gov. The subject line shall
   read “Open Video System Certification Application.” Open video system
   certification applications will not be considered properly filed unless
   filed as described in this paragraph (d).

   (2) On or before the date an FCC Form 1275 is filed with the
   Commission, the applicant must serve a copy of its filing on all local
   communities identified pursuant to paragraph (c)(6) of this section and
   must include a statement informing the local communities of the
   Commission's requirements in paragraph (e) of this section for filing
   oppositions and comments. Service by mail is complete upon mailing, but
   if mailed, the served documents must be postmarked at least 3 days
   prior to the filing of the FCC Form 1275 with the Commission.

   (e)(1) Comments or oppositions to a certification must be filed within
   five calendar days of the Commission's receipt of the certification and
   must be served on the party that filed the certification. If, after
   making the necessary calculations, the due date for filing comments
   falls on a holiday, comments shall be filed on the next business day
   before noon, unless the nearest business day precedes the fifth
   calendar day following a filing, in which case the comments will be due
   on the preceding business day. For example, if the fifth day falls on a
   Saturday, then the filing would be due on that preceding Friday.
   However, if the fifth day falls on Sunday, then the filing will be due
   on the next day, Monday, before noon (or Tuesday, before noon if the
   Monday is a holiday).

   (2) Parties wishing to respond to a FCC Form 1275 filing must submit
   comments or oppositions via electronic mail (email) at the following
   address: OVS@fcc.gov. The subject line shall read “Open Video System
   Certification Application Comments.” Comments and oppositions will not
   be considered properly filed unless filed as described in this
   paragraph (e).

   (f) If the Commission does not disapprove the certification application
   within ten days after receipt of an applicant's request, the
   certification application will be deemed approved. If disapproved, the
   applicant may file a revised certification or refile its original
   submission with a statement addressing the issues in dispute in
   accordance with the procedures described in paragraph (d) of this
   section. Such refilings must be served on any objecting party or
   parties and on all local communities in which the applicant intends to
   operate pursuant to instructions in paragraph (d)(2) of this section.
   The Commission will consider any revised or refiled FCC Form 1275 to be
   a new proceeding and any party who filed comments regarding the
   original FCC Form 1275 will have to refile their original comments if
   they think such comments should be considered in the subsequent
   proceeding.
