  §  1.10014   What happens after officially filing my application?

   (a) We give you an IBFS file number.

   (b) We electronically route your application to an analyst who conducts
   an initial review of your application. If your application is
   incomplete, we will either dismiss the application, or contact you by
   telephone, letter or email to ask for additional information within a
   specific time. In cases where we ask for additional information, if we
   do not receive it within the specified time, we will dismiss your
   application. In either case, we will dismiss your application without
   prejudice, so that you may file again with a complete application.

   (c) If your application is complete, and we verify receipt of your
   payment, it will appear on an “Accepted for Filing” Public Notice,
   unless public notice is not required. An “Accepted for Filing” Public
   Notice gives the public a certain amount of time to comment on your
   filing. This period varies depending upon the type of application.

   (1) Certain applications do not have to go on an “Accepted for Filing”
   Public Notice prior to initiation of service, but instead are filed as
   notifications to the Commission of prior actions by the carriers as
   authorized by the rules. Examples include pro forma notifications of
   transfer of control and assignment and certain foreign carrier
   notifications.

   (2) Each “Accepted for Filing” Public Notice has a report number.
   Examples of various types of applications and their corresponding
   report number (the “x” represents a sequential number) follow.
             Type of application                  Report No.
   325-C Applications                       325-xxxxx.
   Accounting Rate Change                   ARC-xxxxx.
   Foreign Carrier Affiliation Notification FCN-xxxxx.
   International High Frequency             IHF-xxxxx.
   Recognized Operating Agency              ROA-xxxxx.
   Satellite Space Station                  SAT-xxxxx.
   Satellite Earth Station                  SES-xxxxx.
   International Telecommunications:
   Streamlined                              TEL-xxxxxS.
   Non-streamlined                          TEL-xxxxxNS and/or DA.
   Submarine Cable Landing:
   Streamlined                              SCL-xxxxxS.
   Non-streamlined                          SCL-xxxxxNS and/or DA.

   (d) After the Public Notice, your application may undergo legal,
   technical and/or financial review as deemed necessary. In addition,
   some applications require coordination with other government agencies.

   (e) After review, we decide whether to grant or deny applications or
   whether to take other necessary action. Grants, denials and any other
   necessary actions are noted in the IBFS database. Some filings may not
   require any affirmative action, such as some Foreign Carrier
   Affiliation Notification Filings. Other filings, such as some
   International Section 214 Applications, International Accounting Rate
   Change Filings and Requests for assignment of Data Network
   Identification Codes, may be granted automatically on a specific date
   unless the applicant is notified otherwise prior to that date, as
   specified in the rules.

   (f) We list most actions taken on public notices. Each “Action Taken”
   Public Notice has a report number. Examples of various types of
   applications and their corresponding report number (the “x” represents
   a sequential number) follow.
             Type of application                     Report No.
   325-C Applications                       325-xxxxx.
   Accounting Rate Change                   No action taken PN released.
   Foreign Carrier Affiliation Notification No action taken PN released.
   International High Frequency             IHF-xxxxx.

   Submarine Cable Landing                  TEL-xxxxx and DA.

   (g) Other actions are taken by formal written Order, oral actions that
   are followed up with a written document, or grant stamp of the
   application. In all cases, the action dates are available online
   through the IBFS system.
