MEDIA BUREAU REMINDS MVPDs THAT THEY MUST FILE EEO PROGRAM

ANNUAL REPORTS (FCC FORM 396-C) BY OCTOBER 1, 2012 AND IDENTIFIES

THOSE THAT MUST RESPOND TO SUPPLEMENTARY INVESTIGATION

QUESTIONS

Pursuant to Section 76.77 of the Commission’s Rules, 47 C.F.R. § 76.77, by September 30 of
each year multi-channel video program distributors (“MVPDs”) must file with the Commission an
FCC Form 396-C, Multi-Channel Video Programming Distributor EEO Program Annual Report,
for employment units with six or more full-time employees. Given that September 30, 2012 falls
on a Sunday, MVPDs have until October 1, 2012 to meet the filing requirement this year.1 By
this notice we remind all MVPDs of this recurring obligation, provide details on the filing
process, and identify those MVPDs that must complete the Supplementary Investigation Sheet
portion of the form. Users can access the electronic filing system via the Internet from the
Commission’s website, at:
https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.exe/prod/cdbs/forms/prod/cdbsmenu.hts
Paper versions of the form will not be accepted unless accompanied by an appropriate request
for waiver of the electronic filing requirement. The Commission has recognized the need for
limited waivers of that requirement in light of the “burden that electronic filing could place upon
some [entities] who are seeking to serve the public interest, with limited resources, and succeed
in a highly competitive local environment.” Streamlining of Mass Media Applications, Rules and
Processes, Report and Order, 13 FCC Rcd 23056, 23061 (1998). However, such waivers will
not be routinely granted. The requesting party must plead with particularity the facts and
circumstances warranting the relief sought.
As with other electronic forms, filers may fill out part or all of the form and press “save” to retain
what they have filled out, so that the filer may later return to the form and complete it by the due
date. Note that pressing “save” does not file the form with the Commission. When a filer is
ready to file a form, it must press the “validate” button. Forms can be filed only if their status is
“valid.” Pressing “save” at this point cancels the valid status. In order to actually file a form, the
form must be in “valid” status and the filer must press the “file form” button and complete the
filing process. The form may be printed at any stage while it is being completed.
Instructions for use of the electronic filing system are available in the CDBS User’s Guide,
which can be accessed from the electronic filing web site at http://www.fcc.gov/mb/elecfile.html.
Special attention should be given to the details of the applicant account registration and form


1 See 47 C.F.R. § 1.4(j).

filing. Failure to follow the procedures in the User’s Guide may result in a form being
dismissed, returned, or not considered as officially filed.
For technical assistance using the system or to report problems, please contact the CDBS Help
Desk at (202) 418-2MMB. To request additional information concerning the Form 396-C,
please call the EEO staff at (202) 418-1450.
As in prior years, certain MVPDs also will be required to complete portions of the Supplemental
Investigation Sheet (“SIS”) located at the end of the Form. Attached to this Public Notice is a
list of those MVPD units that must submit the SIS with their 2012 filings. If a unit is not on this
list, it does not need to complete the SIS this year. When units on the list attempt to file Form
396-C electronically, those filers will see a check in the box on Section I of the electronic
version of the form next to the statement “Supplemental Investigation Sheet attached.”
For filers required to complete and submit the SIS this year, one job description must be
provided, but only for the Officials and Managers (Part I, Item 1), category, and only questions
3, 5, and 7 of Part II of the SIS must be answered. PLEASE NOTE: SIS Part III requires the
submission of the filer’s EEO public file report. All SIS filers should submit the report created in
2012 covering the previous 12 months.
