Non-Substantive Change Request for Information Collection 3060-0888
Title: Section 76.7, Petition Procedures; Section 76.9, Confidentiality of Proprietary Information; Section 76.61, Dispute Concerning Carriage; Section 76.914, Revocation of Certification; Section 76.1001, Unfair Practices; Section 76.1003, Program Access Proceedings; Section 76.1302, Carriage Agreement Proceedings; Section 76.1513, Open Video Dispute Resolution
This non-substantive change request is being submitted to OMB to reflect the non-substantial change to Section 76.7(a)(3) of the Commission’s Rules, 47 C.F.R. § 76.7(a)(3), made by the Commission in its a Report and Order, FCC 15-111, in MB Docket No. 15-71, released on September 2, 2015. The Report and Order amended Section 76.7(a)(3) to add a missing reference to any “multichannel video programming distributor operator” in the rule section. See amended 47 C.F.R. Section 76.7(a)(3) (“Certificate of service. Petitions and Complaints shall be accompanied by a certificate of service on any cable television system operator, multichannel video programming distributor, franchising authority, station licensee, permittee, or applicant, or other interested person who is likely to be directly affected if the relief requested is granted.”). As reflected in Section 76.7(a)(1) of the Commission’s Rules, 47 C.F.R. § 76.7(a)(1), the petition procedures already apply to a multichannel video programming distributor.
In addition, this collection is updated to reflect mandatory electronic filing regarding filings with the FCC in accordance with 47 C.F.R. § 76.7. Effective January 3, 2012, the Commission requires parties to electronically file Special Relief petitions, complaints and associated responsive pleadings (e.g., answers to complaints, oppositions to petitions, comments, reply comments) with the Commission using the Commission’s Electronic Comment Filing System (ECFS), http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/ecfs/.1 A fee is generally required for the filing of Special Relief petitions and complaints; 47 C.F.R. §§ 1.1104, 1.1117, 76.7. The filing fee is currently $1,465.00. (Note: This information collection requirement is being updated to include the filing fees in the annual cost burden. This was inadvertently omitted from the previous submission and is not due to a substantive change.)
The supporting statement has been updated accordingly. Also, this change request submission does not impact the annual burden hours.
