Goto Year:2020 | 2022
  §  13.13   Application for a renewed or modified license.

   (a) Each application to renew a First Class Radiotelegraph Operator's
   Certificate, Second Class Radiotelegraph Operator's Certificate, Third
   Class Radiotelegraph Operator's Certificate, or Radiotelegraph Operator
   License must be made on FCC Form 605. The application must be
   accompanied by the appropriate fee and submitted in accordance with
   § 1.913 of this chapter. Beginning May 20, 2013, First and Second Class
   Radiotelegraph Operator's Certificates will be renewed as
   Radiotelegraph Operator Licenses, and Third Class Radiotelegraph
   Operator's Certificates will be renewed as Marine Radio Operator
   Permits.

   (b) If a license expires, application for renewal may be made during a
   grace period of five years after the expiration date without having to
   retake the required examinations. The application must be accompanied
   by the required fee and submitted in accordance with § 1.913 of this
   chapter. During the grace period, the expired license is not valid. A
   license renewed during the grace period will be effective as of the
   date of the renewal. Licensees who fail to renew their licenses within
   the grace period must apply for a new license and take the required
   examination(s). Beginning May 20, 2013, no applications for new First,
   Second, or Third Class Radiotelegraph Operator's Certificates will be
   accepted for filing.

   (c) Each application involving a change in operator class must be filed
   on FCC Form 605. Each application for a commercial operator license
   involving a change in operator class must be accompanied by the
   required fee, if any, and submitted in accordance with § 1.913 of this
   chapter. The application must include an original PPC(s) from a
   COLEM(s) showing that the applicant has passed the necessary
   examination Element(s) within the previous 365 days when the applicant
   files the application. If a COLEM files the application on behalf of
   the applicant, an original PPC(s) is not required. However, the COLEM
   must keep the PPC(s) on file for a period of 1 year. When acting on
   behalf of qualified examinees, the COLEM must forward all required data
   to the FCC electronically.

   (d) Provided that a person's commercial radio operator license was not
   revoked, or suspended, and is not the subject of an ongoing suspension
   proceeding, a person holding a General Radiotelephone Operator License,
   Marine Radio Operator Permit, First Class Radiotelegraph Operator's
   Certificate, Second Class Radiotelegraph Operator's Certificate, Third
   Class Radiotelegraph Operator's Certificate, Radiotelegraph Operator
   License, GMDSS Radio Operator's License, GMDSS Radio Maintainer's
   License, or GMDSS Radio Operator/Maintainer License, who has an
   application for another commercial radio operator license which has not
   yet been acted upon pending at the FCC and who holds a PPC(s)
   indicating that he or she passed the necessary examination(s) within
   the previous 365 days, is authorized to exercise the rights and
   privileges of the license for which the application is filed. This
   temporary conditional operating authority is valid for a period of 90
   days from the date the application is received. This temporary
   conditional operating authority does not relieve the licensee of the
   obligation to comply with the certification requirements of the
   Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW)
   Convention. The FCC, in its discretion, may cancel this temporary
   conditional operating authority without a hearing.

   (e) An applicant will be given credit for an examination element as
   specified below:

   (1) An unexpired (or within the grace period) FCC-issued commercial
   radio operator license: Except as noted in paragraph (e)(3) of this
   section, the written examination and telegraphy Element(s) required to
   obtain the license held;

   (2) An expired or unexpired FCC-issued Amateur Extra Class operator
   license grant granted before April 15, 2000: Telegraphy Elements 1 and
   2; and

   (3) An FCC-issued Third Class Radiotelegraph Operator's Certificate
   that was renewed as a Marine Radio Operator Permit (see § 13.13(b) of
   this chapter) that is unexpired (or within the grace period):
   Telegraphy Elements 1 and 2.
