  § 1.1163   Adjustments to regulatory fees.

   (a) For Fiscal Year 2019 and thereafter, the Schedule of Regulatory
   Fees, contained in § § 1.1152 through 1.1156, may be adjusted annually by
   the Commission pursuant to section 9 of the Communications Act. 47
   U.S.C. 159, as amended. Adjustments to the fees established for any
   category of regulatory fee payment shall include projected cost
   increases or decreases and an estimate of the volume of units upon
   which the regulatory fee is calculated.

   (b) The fees assessed shall:

   (1) Be derived by determining the full-time equivalent number of
   employees, bureaus and offices of the Commission, adjusted to take into
   account factors that are reasonably related to the benefits provided to
   the payor of the fee by the Commission's activities; and

   (2) Be established at amounts that will result in collection, during
   each fiscal year, of an amount that can reasonably be expected to equal
   the amount appropriated for such fiscal year for the performance of the
   activities described in paragraph (b)(1) of this section.

   (c) The Commission shall by rule amend the Schedule of Regulatory Fees
   by increases or decreases that reflect, in accordance with paragraph
   (b)(2) of this section, changes in the amount appropriated for the
   performance of the activities described in paragraph (b)(1) of this
   section, for such fiscal year. Such increases or decreases shall be
   adjusted to reflect unexpected increases or decreases in the number of
   units subject to payment of such fees and result in collection of an
   aggregate amount of fees that will approximately equal the amount
   appropriated for the subject regulatory activities.

   (d) The Commission shall, by rule, amend the Schedule of Regulatory
   Fees if the Commission determines that the Schedule requires amendment
   to comply with the requirements of paragraph (b)(1) of this section.

   (e) In adjusting regulatory fees, the Commission will round such fees
   to the nearest $5.00 in the case of fees under $1,000.00, or to the
   nearest $25.00 in the case of fees of $1,000.00 or more.
