FCC Form Revisions Take Effect

Small business and minority participation was goal of initiative

Users of some important FCC forms should take note.

The Media Bureau has announced that revised FCC Forms 301, 314, 315 and 345 are now in effect as of Thursday (May 21).

The changes stem from an order adopted by the commission in late 2007 to increase participation in the broadcasting industry by small businesses and new entrants, including minority- and women-owned businesses. Some of these rule and policy changes necessitated changes to relevant forms, the commission said.

Form 301 is an application for a construction permit for a commercial station. Form 314 is for assignment of a CP or license. Form 315 is for transfer of control of a corporation holding a CP or license. And Form 345 is “Application for Transfer of Control of a Corporate Licensee or Permittee, or Assignment of License or Permit, for an FM or TV Translator Station, or a Low Power Television Station.”

Here’s the announcement, including contact information for questions. The FCC main form page is here.
