§ 1.923 Content of applications.
(a) General. Applications must contain all information requested on the
applicable form and any additional information required by the rules in
this chapter and any rules pertaining to the specific service for which
the application is filed.
(b) Reference to material on file. Questions on application forms that
call for specific technical data, or that can be answered yes or no or
with another short answer, must be answered on the form. Otherwise, if
documents, exhibits, or other lengthy showings already on file with the
FCC contain information required in an application, the application may
incorporate such information by reference, provided that:
(1) The referenced information has been filed in ULS or, if manually
filed outside of ULS, the information comprises more than one “81⁄2 ×
(2) The referenced information is current and accurate in all material
(3) The application states specifically where the referenced
information can actually be found, including:
(i) The station call sign or application file number and its location
if the reference is to station files or previously filed applications;
(ii) The title of the proceeding, the docket number, and any legal
citations, if the reference is to a docketed proceeding.
(c) Antenna locations. Applications for stations at fixed locations
must describe each transmitting antenna site by its geographical
coordinates and also by its street address, or by reference to a nearby
landmark. Geographical coordinates, referenced to NAD83, must be
specified in degrees, minutes, and seconds to the nearest second of
latitude and longitude.
(d) Antenna structure registration. Owners of certain antenna
structures must notify the Federal Aviation Administration and register
with the Commission as required by part 17 of this chapter.
Applications proposing the use of one or more new or existing antenna
structures must contain the FCC Antenna Structure Registration
Number(s) of each structure for which registration is required. To
facilitate frequency coordination or for other purposes, the Bureau
shall accept for filing an application that does not contain the FCC
Antenna Structure Registration Number so long as;
(1) The antenna structure owner has filed an antenna structure
registration application (FCC Form 854);
(2) The antenna structure owner has provided local notice and the
Commission has posted notification of the proposed construction on its
Web site pursuant to § 17.4(c)(3) and (4) of this chapter; and
(3) The antenna structure owner has obtained a Determination of No
Hazard to Aircraft Navigation from the Federal Aviation Administration.
In such instances, the applicant shall provide the FCC Form 854 File
Number on its application. Once the antenna structure owner has
obtained the Antenna Structure Registration Number, the applicant shall
amend its application to provide the Antenna Structure Registration
Number, and the Commission shall not grant the application before the
Antenna Structure Registration Number has been provided. If
registration is not required, the applicant must provide information in
its application sufficient for the Commission to verify this fact.
(e) Environmental concerns. (1) Environmental processing shall be
completed pursuant to the process set forth in § 17.4(c) of this chapter
for any facilities that use one or more new or existing antenna
structures for which a new or amended registration is required by part
17 of this chapter. Environmental review by the Commission must be
completed prior to construction.
(2) For applications that propose any facilities that are not subject
to the process set forth in § 17.4(c) of this chapter, the applicant is
required to indicate at the time its application is filed whether or
not a Commission grant of the application for those facilities may have
a significant environmental effect as defined by § 1.1307. If the
applicant answers affirmatively, an Environmental Assessment, required
by § 1.1311 must be filed with the application and environmental review
by the Commission must be completed prior to construction.
(f) International coordination. Channel assignments and/or usage under
this part are subject to the applicable provisions and requirements of
treaties and other international agreements between the United States
government and the governments of Canada and Mexico.
(g) Quiet zones. Each applicant is required to comply with the “Quiet
Zone” rule (see § 1.924).
(h) Taxpayer Identification Number (TINs). Wireless applicants and
licensees, including all attributable owners of auctionable licenses as
defined by § 1.2112 of this part, are required to provide their Taxpayer
Identification Numbers (TINS) (as defined in 26 U.S.C. 6109) to the
Commission, pursuant to the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996
(DCIA). Under the DCIA, the FCC may use an applicant or licensee's TIN
for purposes of collecting and reporting to the Department of the
Treasury any delinquent amounts arising out of such person's
relationship with the Government. The Commission will not publicly
disclose applicant or licensee TINs unless authorized by law, but will
assign a “public identification number” to each applicant or licensee
registering a TIN. This public identification number will be used for
agency purposes other than debt collection.
(i) Email address. Unless an exception is set forth elsewhere in this
chapter, each applicant must specify an email address where the
applicant can receive electronic correspondence. This email address
will be used by the Commission to serve documents or direct
correspondence to the applicant. Any correspondence sent to the email
address currently on file shall be deemed to have been served on the
applicant. Each applicant should also provide a United States Postal
