The purpose of this collection is to streamline the set of rules which minimize filing requirements via ULS; to eliminate redundant and unnecessary submission requirements; and to assure ongoing collection of reliable licensing and ownership data. The recordkeeping and 3rd party disclosure requirements, along with certifications which made via the ULS Form are two ways the Commission reduced the filing burdens in the industry. However, applicants must maintain records to document compliance with the requirements for which they provide certifications. In some instances 3rd party coordinations are required.
