FCC Updates Fee Schedule
Wednesday, December 30, 2020 | Comments

The FCC adopted a new application fee schedule that updates the commission’s fee schedule in both the types of applications and other processes covered by the fees, as well as the fee amounts.

The updated fees apply to applications, modifications, amendments and renewals of wireless, broadcast and satellite licenses, applications to participate in auctions, tariff filings, formal complaints and certain petitions.

Ray Baum’s Act of 2018 required the FCC to adopt cost-based fees. The FCC said that requirement allows it to bring the commission’s application fee structure into the 21st century by lowering fees to account for processing efficiencies where appropriate, adding new fees for applications that were implemented after the original fee schedule was adopted, and eliminating fees for applications that no longer exist. The new schedule also consolidates some fees.
