Public Inspection Requirements

Complaints alleging the failure of a broadcast station to maintain a complete public inspection file, or to make such file available for public inspection during normal business hours, should be sent to the Federal Communications Commission, Investigations & Hearings Division, 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC 20554.

Complaints should include the call sign and location of the station, and the address where complainant attempted to view a public file. The complaint should also describe the circumstances surrounding the complainant's inability to gain access to the station's public inspection file, or to view or obtain certain documents required to be maintained in that file, including the date and time complainant attempted to inspect the file and the specific documents which the complainant was unable to view or obtain.
