New FCC Electronic Comment Filing System To Debut June 20th; Webinar Today
June 9, 2016 at 3:54 AM (PT)
With its new Electronic Comment Filing System due to go live on JUNE 20th, the FCC has announced details of the change and is holding a webinar TODAY to help users with the transition. Webinars about the new system will also be available on JUNE 14th and 16th.
The current ECFS will be taken down as of 11:59p (ET) JUNE 17th and will be offline until the new system goes online by 8a (ET) on JUNE 20th. The move will not lead to extension of any deadlines if all goes as planned, since the system will be down only during non-business hours. The Commission says that all documents currently in the system will be available through the new version, and links to those documents should not need to be changed.
Today's tutorial will begin at 2p (ET) at this link. The event number is 990 431 934 and the password is fcc123. For audio, the number is 1-888-858-2144 and the access code is 2496592.
