The Federal Communications Commission’s Electronic Comment Filing System (ECFS) is getting a makeover.
On Monday, the commission announced its ECFS has undergone an initial system upgrade — the first of many to be introduced in the coming year.
This update transitions ECFS to a cloud-based platform, which will make the system scalable and more agile, according to the FCC. In addition, reCAPTCHA functionality has been added to the system.
Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said the comment system is an important part of the FCC’s legal process.
“Our comment filing system is a critical avenue for public input that we need to keep up-to-date,” said Rosenworcel. “Today’s effort is a start to do just that and I want to thank the FCC staff and contractors who have made this possible.”
The commission said this first phase of the multi-phase ECFS upgrade effort will “enable development of new functions that take advantage of the upgraded technology platform.”
