Closed Captioning of Video Programming Delivered Using Internet Protocol, and Apparatus Closed Caption Requirements

OMB 3060-1162

OMB 3060-1162

The Commission is submitting this revised information collection to transfer certain information collection burdens associated with this OMB control number to another OMB control number. This change is being made to reflect the development of an online form for use by consumers in filing complaints with the Commission that allege violations of the FCC’s disability accessibility requirements. The online form is part of an information collection reflected in OMB control number 3060-0874. The Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA) directed the Commission to revise its regulations to mandate closed captioning on IP-delivered video programming that was published or exhibited on television with captions after the effective date of the regulations. Accordingly, the Commission requires video programming owners (VPOs) to send program files to video programming distributors and providers (hereinafter VPDs) with required captions, and it requires VPDs to enable the rendering or pass through of all required captions to the end user. The CVAA also directed the Commission to revise its regulations to mandate that all apparatus designed to receive, play back, or record video programming be equipped with built-in closed caption decoder circuitry or capability designed to display closed-captioned video programming, except that apparatus that use a picture screen that is 13 inches or smaller and recording devices must comply only if doing so is achievable. These rules are codified at 47 CFR §§ 79.4 and 79.100 – 79.104.

The latest form for Closed Captioning of Video Programming Delivered Using Internet Protocol, and Apparatus Closed Caption Requirements expires 2021-09-30 and can be found here.
