FCC Amends Schedule of Application Fees


The FCC has adjusted its schedule of fees for processing applications and other filings.  Pursuant to Section 8(b)(1) of the Communications Act, in every even-numbered year, the Commission must adjust the schedule of its application fees to account for changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI), rounded to the nearest $5 increment.  This year, the Commission has changed the application fees to reflect a net change in the CPI of 11.6 percent, an increase of 30.958 index points calculated from 267.054 to 298.012.  The Commission has specified new application and other filing fees for: (1) wireless telecommunications services; (2) equipment approval and experiential radio services; (3) media services; (4) wireline competition services; (5) enforcement services; and (6) international services.
