  §  1.947   Modification of licenses.

   (a) All major modifications, as defined in § 1.929 of this part, require
   prior Commission approval. Applications for major modifications also
   shall be treated as new applications for determination of filing date,
   Public Notice, and petition to deny purposes.

   (b) Licensees may make minor modifications to station authorizations,
   as defined in § 1.929 (other than pro forma transfers and assignments),
   as a matter of right without prior Commission approval. Where other
   rules in this part permit licensees to make permissive changes to
   technical parameters without notifying the Commission (e.g., adding,
   modifying, or deleting internal sites), no notification is required.
   For all other types of minor modifications (e.g., name, email or
   physical mailing address, point of contact changes), licensees must
   notify the Commission by filing FCC Form 601 within thirty (30) days of
   implementing any such changes.

   (c) Multiple pending modification applications requesting changes to
   the same or related technical parameters on an authorization are not
   permitted. If a modification application is pending, any additional
   changes to the same or related technical parameters may be requested
   only in an amendment to the pending modification application.

   (d) Any proposed modification that requires a fee as set forth at part
   1, subpart G, of this chapter must be filed in accordance with § 1.913.

   [ 63 FR 68933 , Dec. 14, 1998, as amended at  64 FR 53240 , Oct. 1, 1999;
    85 FR 85530 , Dec. 29, 2020]
