Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The FCC is preparing a system of records, FCC/MB–2, ‘‘Broadcast Station Public Inspection Files,’’ to cover the personally identifiable information (PII) that may be included in the broadcast station public inspection files. Respondents may request materials or information submitted to the Commission be withheld from public inspection under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules. Privacy Impact Assessment: There are two systems of records relevant to this collection: FCC/MB–2, ‘‘Broadcast Station Public Inspection Files,’’ and FCC/IB–1, ‘‘International Bureau Filing System (IBFS).’’ The Commission has published a system of records notice (SORN) for FCC/MB–2 and will modify it as necessary to include any personally identifiable information (PII) that will be added to the Online Public Inspection Files system as part of this collection. The Commission is also preparing a SORN for FCC/IBFS–1 to cover any PII that will be added to IBFS as part of this collection. The Commission is preparing Privacy Impact Assessments for both systems. Needs and Uses: The information collection requirements that are approved under this collection are as follows: 47 CFR 73.1212 requires a broadcast station to identify at the time of broadcast the sponsor of any matter for which consideration is provided. For advertising commercial products or services, generally the mention of the name of the product or service constitutes sponsorship identification. In the case of television political advertisements concerning candidates for public office, the sponsor shall be identified with letters equal to or greater than four (4) percent of the vertical height of the television screen that airs for no less than four (4) seconds. In addition, when an entity rather than an individual sponsors the broadcast of matter that is of a political or controversial nature, licensee is required to retain a list of the executive officers, or board of directors, or executive committee, etc., of the organization paying for such matter. Sponsorship announcements are waived with respect to the broadcast of ‘‘want ads’’ sponsored by an individual but the licensee shall maintain a list showing the name, address and telephone number of each such advertiser.

Pursuant to the changes contained in 47 CFR 73.1212(e) and 47 CFR 73.3526(e)(19), this list, which could contain personally identifiable information, would be located in a public inspection file to be located on the Commission’s website instead of being maintained in the public file at the station. Burden estimates for this change are included in OMB Control Number 3060–0214. 47 CFR 76.1615 states that, when a cable operator engaged in origination cablecasting presents any matter for which money, service or other valuable consideration is provided to such cable television system operator, the cable television system operator, at the time of the telecast, shall identify the sponsor. Under this rule section, when advertising commercial products or services, an announcement stating the sponsor’s corporate or trade name, or the name of the sponsor’s product is sufficient when it is clear that the mention of the name of the product constitutes a sponsorship identification. In the case of television political advertisements concerning candidates for public office, the sponsor shall be identified with letters equal to or greater than four (4) percent of the vertical height of the television screen that airs for no less than four (4) seconds. 47 CFR 76.1715 state that, with respect to sponsorship announcements that are waived when the broadcast/ origination cablecast of ‘‘want ads’’ sponsored by an individual, the licensee/operator shall maintain a list showing the name, address and telephone number of each such advertiser.

Apr. 22, 2021).

The filing must state the date and time the program aired. In the case of repeat airings of the program, those additional dates and times should also be included. Where an aural announcement was made, its contents must be reduced to writing and placed in the online public inspection file in the same manner.

statutory authority for this collection is contained in sections 4(i), 
317 and 507 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.
    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The FCC is preparing a system 
of records, FCC/MB-2, ``Broadcast Station Public Inspection Files,'' to 
cover the personally identifiable information (PII) that may be 
included in the broadcast station public inspection files. Respondents 
may request materials or information submitted to the Commission be 
withheld from public inspection under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission's 
rules.
    Privacy Impact Assessment: There are two systems of records 
relevant to this collection: FCC/MB-2, ``Broadcast Station Public 
Inspection Files,'' and FCC/IB-1, ``International Bureau Filing System 
(IBFS).'' The Commission has published a system of records notice 
(SORN) for FCC/MB-2 and will modify it as necessary to include any 
personally identifiable information (PII) that will be added to the 
Online Public Inspection Files system as part of this collection. The 
Commission is also preparing a SORN for FCC/IBFS-1 to cover any PII 
that will be added to IBFS as part of this collection. The Commission 
is preparing Privacy Impact Assessments for both systems.
    Needs and Uses: The information collection requirements that are 
approved under this collection are as follows:
    47 CFR 73.1212 requires a broadcast station to identify at the time 
of broadcast the sponsor of any matter for which consideration is 
provided. For advertising commercial products or services, generally 
the mention of the name of the product or service constitutes 
sponsorship identification. In the case of television political 
advertisements concerning candidates for public office, the sponsor 
shall be identified with letters equal to or greater than four (4) 
percent of the vertical height of the television screen that airs for 
no less than four (4) seconds. In addition, when an entity rather than 
an individual sponsors the broadcast of matter that is of a political 
or controversial nature, licensee is required to retain a list of the 
executive officers, or board of directors, or executive committee, 
etc., of the organization paying for such matter. Sponsorship 
announcements are waived with respect to the broadcast of ``want ads'' 
sponsored by an individual but the licensee shall maintain a list 
showing the name, address and telephone number of each such advertiser. 
These lists shall be made available for public inspection.
    47 CFR 73.1212(e) states that, when an entity rather than an 
individual sponsors the broadcast of matter that is of a political or 
controversial nature, the licensee is required to retain a list of the 
executive officers, or board of directors, or executive committee, 
etc., of the organization paying for such matter in its public file. 
Pursuant to the changes contained in 47 CFR 73.1212(e) and 47 CFR 
73.3526(e)(19), this list, which could contain personally identifiable 
information, would be located in a public inspection file to be located 
on the Commission's website instead of being maintained in the public 
file at the station. Burden estimates for this change are included in 
OMB Control Number 3060-0214.
    47 CFR 76.1615 states that, when a cable operator engaged in 
origination cablecasting presents any matter for which money, service 
or other valuable consideration is provided to such cable television 
system operator, the cable television system operator, at the time of 
the telecast, shall identify the sponsor. Under this rule section, when 
advertising commercial products or services, an announcement stating 
the sponsor's corporate or trade name, or the name of the sponsor's 
product is sufficient when it is clear that the mention of the name of 
the product constitutes a sponsorship identification. In the case of 
television political advertisements concerning candidates for public 
office, the sponsor shall be identified with letters equal to or 
greater than four (4) percent of the vertical height of the television 
screen that airs for no less than four (4) seconds.
    47 CFR 76.1715 state that, with respect to sponsorship 
announcements that are waived when the broadcast/origination cablecast 
of ``want ads'' sponsored by an individual, the licensee/operator shall 
maintain a list showing the name, address and telephone number of each 
such advertiser. These lists shall be made available for public 
inspection.
    This information collection is being revised to reflect the burden 
associated with the foreign sponsorship identification disclosure 
requirements adopted in the Sponsorship Identification Requirements for 
Foreign Government-Provided Programming (86 FR 32221, June 17, 2021, 
FCC 21-42, rel. Apr. 22, 2021). The collection requires broadcast 
television and radio stations, as well as 325(c) permit holders, to 
make a specific disclosure at the time of broadcast if material aired 
pursuant to the lease of time on the station has been sponsored, paid 
for, or

furnished by a foreign governmental entity that indicates the specific 
entity and country involved. Licensees of each broadcast station and 
325(c) permit holders also are required to exercise reasonable 
diligence to ascertain whether the foreign sponsorship disclosure 
requirements apply at the time of the lease agreement and at any 
renewal thereof.
