The FCC has a new location it wants filers to send hand or messenger delivered documents. The agency began diverting hand or messenger delivered documents to its Capital Heights, Maryland facility as of Oct. 18 as a security precaution.
Effective Dec. 18, the agency's contractor, Vistronix, Inc., will begin receiving hand-delivered or messenger-delivered paper filings for the commission's Secretary at a new location in downtown Washington, DC. The address is 236 Massachusetts Avenue, NE, Suite 110, Washington, DC 20002. The filing hours at this location will be 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. All hand deliveries must be held together with rubber bands or fasteners. Any envelopes must be disposed of before entering the building.
Accordingly, the agency will no longer accept these filings at 9300 East Hampton Drive, Capitol Heights, MD 20743.
Other messenger-delivered documents, including documents sent by overnight mail (other than United States Postal Service (USPS) Express Mail and Priority Mail), must be addressed to 9300 East Hampton Drive, Capitol Heights, MD 20743. This location will be open 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The USPS first-class mail, Express Mail, and Priority Mail should continue to be addressed to the commission's headquarters at 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC 20554.
