The fax number must also be provided voluntarily by the recipient; and (4) Express Invitation or Permission Recordkeeping where in the absence of an EBR, the sender must obtain the prior express invitation or permission from the consumer before sending the facsimile advertisement. Section 227 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and the FCC’s parallel rules restrict various telemarketing and advertising activities. The new Junk Fax/Telemarketing Form, FCC Form 1088, is designed specifically for complaints that involve (1) junk faxes, (2) telemarketing (including donot-call violations), and (3) other related issues such as prerecorded messages, automatic telephone dialing systems, and unsolicited commercial email messages to wireless telecommunications devices (cell phones, pagers). FCC Form 1088 will allow the Commission to collect detailed information from consumers concerning possible violations of the Communications Act and the FCC’s fax and telemarketing rules, which will enable the Commission to investigate rule violations more efficiently and to initiate enforcement actions against violators as appropriate. By collecting their complaints and related information in a single, comprehensive template, the form will provide a standardized way for consumers to file complaints, thus eliminating the need for further documentation or questions from FCC investigators to determine whether violations have occurred. This ensures that consumers can present their complaints in a way that maximizes the FCC’s ability to take enforcement actions against violators and protects complainants and other consumers from unlawful telemarketing and faxing that is intrusive, uninvited, and possibly costly. Furthermore, the form’s format avoids the need for complainants to compose narratives that describe unwanted telemarketing or faxing, and instead permits VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:44 Jan 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 complainants to answer questions, principally by simply selecting options presented on the form, which should reduce the time to file a complaint. The form will allow the Commission to gather and to review this information more efficiently. The information the form collects may ultimately become the foundation for enforcement actions and/ or rulemaking proceedings, as appropriate. FCC Form 1088 asks for the complainant’s contact information, including name, address, telephone number and e-mail address; then presents a ‘‘gateway’’ question to determine the general topic of the complaint: (1) A fax or (2) a call or message to a residential telephone, business telephone, emergency telephone or patient telephone, wireless telecommunications device, or any service for which the called party is charged. After the complainant answers this question, the form asks additional questions geared to the specific type of incident reported. The form poses certain mandatory threshold questions that must be answered for the Commission to determine whether a violation has occurred. It also presents optional questions for complainants who wish to provide the Commission with more detailed information that a complainant believes may assist the Commission in investigating the complaint. Finally, the form permits a complainant to attest to the accuracy of the information provided by ensuring that the Commission has documentation necessary for any possible enforcement actions without further contacting the complainant to obtain a sworn declaration or other materials. The Commission believes the new FCC Form 1088 to be a logical extension of its Junk Fax and Telemarketing rulemaking efforts. Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary.

Total Annual Cost: $19,389,625. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for confidentiality. Needs and Uses: On November 3, 2006, the Commission adopted the Report and Order (‘‘R&O’’), Revision of Procedures Governing Amendments to FM Table of Allotments and Changes of Community of License in the Radio Broadcast Services, MB Docket 05–210, FCC 06–163. In this R&O, the Commission extended to noncommercial educational FM licensees and permittees the same ability to request changes of community of license by first come-first served minor modification application as was being granted to other commercial fullservice AM standard band and FM licensees and permittees. Previously, because a change in an NCE station’s community of license was considered a major modification in the station’s facilities, an NCE applicant had to await the opening of an announced Noncommercial Educational (NCE) new and major change application filing window. Filing on a first-come firstserved basis will significantly reduce the risk of application mutual exclusivity. The application of this new procedure to NCE stations was not proposed in the Notice of Proposed Rule Making in this proceeding, but the Commission found it to be a logical outgrowth of a proposal in that proceeding based on comments received, and accordingly adopted the change in the R&O. Thus, the Commission proposes to revise FCC Form 340 to accommodate NCE applicants who seek to change their NCE station’s community of license by minor modification application. Specifically, the Commission revises the FCC Form 340 to reflect the requirement that NCE applicants employing this procedure must include VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:44 Jan 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 an exhibit demonstrating that the proposed community of license change comports with the fair, efficient and equitable distribution of radio service policies under Section 307(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. NCE applicants proposing a change in community of license must provide Section 307(b) information demonstrating the merits of locating the station in the new community, as opposed to the current community of license. This form, FCC Form 340, is the only form being revised by the FCC’s action in this information collection. FCC Forms 302–TV and 349 remain unchanged. FCC Form 302–TV is used by licensees and permittees of TV broadcast stations to obtain a new or modified station license and/or to notify the Commission of certain changes in the licensed facilities of these stations. FCC 340 is used to apply for authority to construct a new noncommercial educational FM or TV station or to make changes in the existing facilities of such a station. The FCC 340 is to be used if the broadcast station will operate on a channel that is reserved exclusively for noncommercial educational use and on non-reserved channels if the applicant proposes to build and operate a NCE station. FCC Form 349 is used to apply for authority to construct a new FM translator or FM booster broadcast station, or to make changes in the existing facilities of such stations. This form also includes the third party disclosure requirement of 47 CFR 73.3580 (3060–0031). Section 73.3580 requires local public notice in a newspaper of general circulation of all application filings for new or major change in facilities. This notice must be completed within 30 days of the tendering of the application. This notice must be published at least twice a week for two consecutive weeks in a threeweek period. A copy of this notice must be placed in the public inspection file along with the application. Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary. [FR Doc.

    Needs and Uses: On November 3, 2006, the Commission adopted the

to FM Table of Allotments and Changes of Community of License in the 
Radio Broadcast Services, MB Docket 05-210, FCC 06-163. In this R&O, 
the Commission extended to noncommercial educational FM licensees and

change in the R&O. Thus, the Commission proposes to revise FCC Form 340

    FCC Form 302-TV is used by licensees and permittees of TV broadcast

the Commission of certain changes in the licensed facilities of these

translator or FM booster broadcast station, or to make changes in the 
existing facilities of such stations. This form also includes the third 
party disclosure requirement of 47 CFR 73.3580 (3060-0031). Section 
73.3580 requires local public notice in a newspaper of general
