This article provides information on Weekly Status Public Notices pertaining to applications and licenses in the Universal Licensing System (ULS) as well as registrations in the Antenna Structure Registration (ASR) system. Generally, Weekly Status Public Notices are released every Wednesday and are published in the FCC’s Daily Digest.

There are three categories of Public Notices:

  1. Accepted for Filing Public Notices: These Public Notices list applications that are accepted for filing subject to the pre-grant notice and petition procedure of Section 309 of the Communications Act. Prior to acting on an application, a comment period is established where parties can file comments and provide reasons why they believe an application should be granted or denied. Comment periods are either 14 days or 30 days depending on the type of application.
  2. Action Public Notices: These Public Notices list applications that were granted, dismissed, or otherwise acted upon during the previous week.
  3. Termination Pending Public Notices: These Public Notices list licenses where the license or part of the license is presumed to have terminated automatically for failure of the licensee to meet buildout requirements pursuant to Section 1.946 of the FCC’s rules.

Each Weekly Status Public Notice is separated by the bureau that processes the applications or licenses. The bureaus are: Wireless Telecommunications Bureau or the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau.
