Cable System Registration

Before commencing operation, a cable system operator must file FCC Form 322 (Cable Community Registration) for each community to be served in accordance with 47 C.F.R 76.1801.  The purpose of the cable registration form is to provide an accurate and updated record of all cable systems operating in the United States.  Each community must have its own separate registration form.  The Commission will assign a Community Unit Identification number (CUID) when the registration process is complete.

Registrations can be done online at  http://www.fcc.gov/coals.  The fee is $60.00, and the code is "TAC".   Follow this link for the current Media Bureau Fee Filing Guide (2011) for each community being registered.

If you have any questions on Cable System Registration, please call (202) 418-7000.
