§ 78.20 Acceptance of applications; public notice.
(a) Applications which are tendered for filing are dated upon receipt
and then forwarded to the Media Bureau where an examination is made to
ascertain whether the applications are complete. Applications found to
be complete or substantially complete, are accepted for filing and are
given a file number. In case of minor defects as to completeness, the
applicant will be required to supply the missing information.
Applications which are not substantially complete will be returned to
the applicant. Applications requiring fees as set forth at part 1,
subpart G, of this chapter must be filed in accordance with § 0.401(b)
of this chapter.
(b) Acceptance of an application for filing means only that it has been
the subject of a preliminary review by the Commission's administrative
staff as to completeness. Applications which are determined to be
clearly not in accordance with the Commission's rules or other
requirements, unless accompanied by an appropriate request for waiver,
will be considered defective and will not be accepted for filing, or if
inadvertently accepted for filing, will be dismissed. Requests for
waiver shall show the nature of the waiver or exception desired and
shall set forth the reasons in support thereof.
(c) The Commission will give public notice of all applications and
major amendments thereto which have been accepted for filing. No
application shall be acted on less than thirty (30) days from the date
of public notice.
