Part 11 - Emergency Alert System (EAS), Order FCC 19-57

OMB 3060-0207

OMB 3060-0207

The Commission is submitting this non-substantive change request for OMB approval to an existing information collection. The FCC is proposing non-substantive updates to previously approved collections represented by the forms associated with the mandatory electronic EAS Test Reporting System (ETRS) that EAS Participants must utilize to file identifying and test result data as part of their participation in any authorized nationwide EAS tests (3060-0207). The collections in the modified ETRS forms are consistent with those approved by the Office of Management and Budget in the 2011 and 2017 revisions to the EAS PRA collection set forth in the FCC’s EAS Third Report and Order and in the related 2011 emergency request (and subsequent standard request) for approval of the electronic version of that previously approved collection (and the PRA filing made for the ETRS when it became a mandatory filing mechanism in 2015). The current modification to the ETRS is to improve and clarify the filing experience. Every change requested either improves efficiency or clarifies previously unclear points for the user. In some cases, we are proposing to implement changes that users requested. The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB or Bureau), working with the ETRS developers, has made every effort to draft these modifications to be minimal, non-material changes, consistent with previous OMB approvals. The updates to this collection will cause no change in the burden estimates or reporting and record keeping requirements that the Commission submitted (and which OMB subsequently approved) for the 2011 and 2017 systems. In the EAS Order on Reconsideration, FCC 19-57 (rel. June 27, 2019), the Commission amends Part 11 of its rules to (i) eliminate requiring Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS) providers to transmit weekly tests in favor of requiring them to only log receipt of the weekly test, and (ii) eliminate the requirement that SDARS providers transmit monthly test on all channels in favor of requiring them to transmit the monthly test on 10% of all of their channels, with channels tested varying from month to month, so that over the course of a given year, 100% of all of its channels are tested. This action harmonizes the EAS testing requirements applied to SDARS service with those applied to the similarly situated Direct Broadcast Satellite service.
