This page includes information on the extension of filing and regulatory deadlines as a result of Hurricane Sandy. On November 1, 2012, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau released a Public Notice where the Wireless Bureau extended certain filing and regulatory deadlines occurring between October 27, 2012 and November 2, 2012, until November 5, 2012 for all Wireless Radio Service licensees and applicants.
In addition, certain filing and regulatory deadlines occurring between October 27, 2012, and November 27, 2012, were extended until November 28, 2012 for “affected” licensees in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York – the states where President Obama issued a major disaster declaration. "Affected” licensees and applicants include those licensees and applicants that operate facilities, or, in a significant manner essential to the business operation, rely on personnel, records, or financial institutions located in these states to provide services or to conduct substantial business activities with the Commission.
To take advantage of the extension, a certification must be included with each filing that states “upon the penalty of perjury that the deadline could not be met within the time otherwise provided in the Commission’s rules because of the hurricane.”
