  §  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 ×
   11” page.

   (2) The referenced information is current and accurate in all material
   respects; and

   (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
   Service address.
