Marriott Agrees to $70,000 Fine for Transferring Licenses without Approval
Tuesday, April 28, 2020 | Comments

The FCC entered into a consent decree with Marriott Vacations Worldwide to resolve its investigation into whether Marriott violated the Communications Act of 1934 and the commission’s rules when it acquired wireless radio licenses from various entities as part of its acquisition of ILG prior to receiving approval from the FCC.

To settle this matter, Marriott admitted that it failed to obtain the commission’s approval prior to the transfer of licenses associated with its acquisition of ILG and other entities, and the company agreed to implement a compliance plan and pay a $70,000 civil penalty.

The FCC said the public interest will be served by adopting the consent decree and terminating the referenced investigation regarding Marriott’s compliance pertaining to unauthorized transfers of control and assignments of licenses. The FCC’s order is here.

Marriott International entered into a consent decree with the FCC and agreed to pay $504,000 and implement a compliance plan in 2018.
