FCC 605 is a multi-part, consolidated, general application form that is part of the Universal Licensing System (ULS). Form 605 includes a main form containing administrative information and a series of Schedules used to file technical information applicable to a specific radio service. The form is used to file for authorization to operate radio stations, amend pending applications, modify existing licenses, renew or renew/modify existing licenses, request cancellation of a license, withdraw a pending application, request a duplicate license, or request an administrative update of an existing license (i.e., name change without change to corporate structure or control, change mailing address, change name of vessel, etc.) in the Ship (Part 80), Aircraft (Part 87), Amateur (including Amateur Vanity (Part 97)), Restricted and Commercial (Part 13), and General Mobile Radio Services (GMRS) (Part 95). This form is also used to apply for a Developmental License or a Special Temporary Authority (STA) in these services and to self-certify for temporary authorization to operate where applicable. Respondents are encouraged to submit FCC 605 electronically. The Commission is requesting OMB approval for a minor revision to the reporting, recordkeeping and/or third-party disclosure requirements. The Commission is removing Certification #3 for the General Mobile Radio Service, as well as minor clarifications to the General Filing Instructions. Additionally, FCC Report and Order Amendment of the Schedule of Application Fees Set Forth in Sections 1.1102 through 1.1109 of the Commission’s Rules, Report and Order, FCC 20-184 (rel. Dec. 29, 2020), streamlined the Commission’s application fees associated to the FCC Form 605 and all applicants are now charged a $35 fee. Previously Amateur Radio applicants were non-feeable and the previous 29% that were paying a $71 fee are now reduced to a $35 fee. Please see the non-substantive change request justification for the reason behind this change request submission to the Office of Management and Budget for review and approval.

There is an adjustment/increase to the burden hours of +50,000 hours which is due to the Commission inadvertently entering the incorrect burden in ROCIS with the last approval for this collection. We are correcting this mishap with this submission to OMB.
