INTERNATIONAL BUREAU ANNOUNCES COMMENT AND REPLY COMMENT DATES

FOR THE NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULEMAKING ON FOREIGN OWNERSHIP POLICIES

FOR COMMON CARRIER AND CERTAIN AERONAUTICAL RADIO LICENSEES

IB Docket No. 11-133

Comments Due: December 5, 2011
Reply Comments Due: January 4, 2012

On August 9, 2011, the Federal Communications Commission adopted a Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking (NPRM) that initiates a review of the Commission's policies and procedures that apply to
foreign ownership of common carrier radio station licensees and of aeronautical en route and aeronautical
fixed radio station licensees under section 310(b)(4) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.1
In the NPRM, the Commission sought comment on measures to revise and simplify its regulatory
framework under section 310(b)(4) for authorizing foreign ownership of common carrier and certain
aeronautical radio licensees. The Commission also proposed to codify whatever measures it ultimately
adopts in the proceeding to provide more predictability and ensure transparency of the section 310(b)(4)
filing requirements and review process. The NPRM set deadlines for filing comments and reply
comments at 45 and 75 days after publication in the Federal Register.
On October 21, 2011, the Federal Register published a summary of the NPRM.2 Accordingly,
comments must be filed on or before December 5, 2011; and reply comments must be filed on or before
January 4, 2012. The NPRM sets forth the comment filing instructions.
For further information regarding this proceeding, contact Howard Griboff or Susan O'Connell,
Policy Division, International Bureau, (202) 418-1460.
