OMB finds the points raised by TMI by their Counsel in the filing of June 23, 1997 compelling. Therefore, OMB approves this collection with the exception of the requirement that entities seeking to participate in future satellite licensing proceedings using non-U.S. licensed satellites must file the information required by Section 25.114. Instead of these new requirements, used to issue U.S. licenses, the FCC may ask entities to provide copies of the materials they used to gain approval through the ITU process. Accordingly, OMB has reduced the cost burden to $300 per respondent to reflect the projected cost of providing these materials, along with a letter of intent and a description of the space station authorization process used/status, to the FCC.

Procedures for non-U.S. licensed satellite entities to participate in future satellite processing rounds in order to be considered when the Commission acts on applications for new or additional satellite services in the U.S. Under the WTO, non-U.S. licensed entities which are licensed by or coordinated internationally by foreign administrations that are part of the World Trade Organization must be offered appropriate opportunities to compete in the U.S. market.
