In order to implement a nationwide rebanding of public safety communications systems in a safe, efficient and timely manner, the Commission requires information necessary to facilitate the relocation of public safety systems onto the new NPSPAC portion of the 800 MHz band and thus prevent future interference to public safety communications.
This collection of information is vital to eliminating interference to Public Safety communications. This request for emergency processing is consistent with 5 C.F.R. § 1320.13(a)(2)(iii) of OMB regulations, which states that requests for emergency processing shall be accompanied by a written determination that the agency cannot reasonably comply with the normal clearance procedures because doing so is likely to prevent or disrupt the collection of information. The use of normal clearance procedures is likely to prevent the timely collection of information essential to the timely completion of 800 MHz rebanding required by the Commission's Orders. The information collection for which the Commission seeks OMB emergency approval is vital to the Commission's statutory obligation to promote public safety communications and is consistent with information collection requirements that OMB previously approved for relocating 800 MHz incumbents in this proceeding.

Miscellaneous Actions
The increase is occurring because the Commission has established procedures and provided guidance for submission by 800 MHz licensees of requests for waiver of the 800 MHz rebanding deadline. The guidance is intended to expedite both the preparation and submission of waiver requests by licensees as well as the review of such requests by the Commission, consistent with the Commission's overarching goal of ensuring that rebanding is accomplished in a reasonable, prudent, and timely manner.
