Needs and Uses: The Federal Communications Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is requesting that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve the establishment of a new information collection titled, ‘‘Application for Permit to Deliver Programs to Foreign Broadcast Stations (FCC Form 308).’’ Applicants use the PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FCC Form 308 to apply, under Section 325(c) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, for authority to locate, use, or maintain a studio in the United States for the purpose of supplying program material to a foreign radio or TV broadcast station whose signals are consistently received in the United States, or for extension of existing authority. Currently, the FCC Form 308 is only available to the public in paper form. The Commission is requesting OMB approval of a revised FCC Form 308, in Excel format, that will be made available to the public on the FCC Forms page of the FCC’s website, www.fcc.gov <http://www.fcc.gov/>. The form was revised to make it more user friendly and to include questions to obtain only the legal and technical information that is essential to grant authority to U.S. broadcasters to supply program material to a foreign radio or TV broadcast station whose signals are consistently received in the U.S. or to extend the current authority. After the applicant completes the form, it is mailed to the U.S. Bank along with the application fee.

Broadcasters are also subject to the local public notice provisions stated in Section 73.3580 of Subpart H. The Commission adopted Section 73.3580 in order to ensure that the public is informed of a station’s filing of an application or amendment by advertisements in local newspapers. The public is kept abreast of the stations’ existence in a local area or plans to locate in a specific local area through such advertisements. Section 73.3580 also requires that certain applications be maintained on file for public inspection at a stated address in the community in which the station is located or is proposed to be located. Without this collection of information, the Commission would not be able to ascertain whether the main studio owner in the US meets various legal requirements or the foreign broadcast facility, which receives and retransmits programming from the main studio in the US, meets various technical requirements that prevent harmful interference to other broadcast stations or telecommunications facilities.

Respondents or applicants may request materials be withheld from public inspection under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules. Need and Uses: The Commission is requesting a revision of this information collection from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in order to obtain the full three year clearance from them. This revision includes certain collections that were formerly approved under different OMB control PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62775 numbers. Upon OMB approval, OMB Control Number 3060–0531 will incorporate requirements formerly approved under OMB Control Numbers 3060–0947 and 3060–0963. The Commission will retain OMB Control Number 3060–0531 as the active number for the OMB inventory. This submission to the OMB seeks to renew the reporting and third party requirements imposed on respondents in the Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS) pursuant to 47 CFR 101.103 101.1011 and to consolidate similar reporting requirements imposed on Multiple Address System (MAS) Economic Area (EA) licensees pursuant to 47 CFR 101.1325, 101.1327 and 24 GHz licensees pursuant to 47 CFR 101.527 and 101.529. There are no changes to these reporting and third party requirements, we are only consolidating the three collections into one comprehensive information collection. The information is used by the Commission staff to satisfy requirements for licensees to demonstrate substantial service at the time of license renewal. Without this information, the Commission would not be able to carry out its statutory responsibilities. The third party disclosure coordination requirements are necessary to ensure that licensees do not cause harmful interference to each other. Federal Communications Commission. William F.
