The Federal Communications Commission requests that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve a revision of the information collection titled “Part 25 of the Federal Communications Commission's Rules Governing the Licensing of, and Spectrum Usage By, Commercial Earth Stations and Space Stations” under OMB Control No. 3060-0678, as a result of the rulemaking discussed below. On March 3, 2020, the Commission released a Report and Order and Order of Proposed Modification, FCC 20-22, GN Docket No. 18-122, titled “Expanding Flexible Use of the 3.7 to 4.2 GHz Band.” In this Report and Order and Order of Proposed Modification, the Commission updated its rules by reforming the use of the 3.7-4.2 GHz band, also known as the C-Band. The new rules repack existing satellite operations into the upper 200 megahertz of the band (and reserve a 20 megahertz guard band), making a significant amount of spectrum – 280 megahertz or more than half of the band – available for flexible use throughout the contiguous United States. The relevant rule revisions for purposes of this information collection are the addition of sections 25.138 and 25.147 of the Commission’s rules. In updating this information collection, we are not accounting for any changes to the number of respondents, burden hours, and annual cost related to these rule revisions since the addition of sections 25.138 and 25.147 set forth rules for transition of operations from one frequency band to another. Please see the non-substantive change request justification for the reason behind this change request submission being made to the Office of Management and Budget for review and approval.
