FCC Website Availability

General Website Maintenance Policy & Schedule:

We strive to make the FCC’s network and on-line systems highly reliable and available. Toward this end, we must periodically bring down systems for service, software updates, repairs, routine maintenance and performance tuning. Accordingly, we have established a weekly network maintenance window - Saturday 10 p.m. to Sunday 6 a.m (Eastern Time) – when some or all FCC systems might be brought down for maintenance work. During this period the public may not have access to our online documents, electronic filing/licensing applications or to the entire FCC web site. While you may attempt to access systems during the maintenance window, you do so at your own risk.

While this work is essential, we also recognize that it presents an inconvenience for those of you who use our online systems. If at any given time maintenance is not required for that week, the maintenance window will be cancelled and a notification will be posted above. On those occasions when it is necessary to bring down all systems, the appropriate notification will be posted in the same place.
