FCC to Rescind Interim Procedures for Electronic Filing
Come September, there will be no filing at the FCC by fax or e-mail.

The FCC is doing away with interim procedures it adopted in 2001 to allow electronic filing of certain pleadings. It did so after an anthrax scare on Capitol Hill and some U.S. Postal Service processing facilities disrupted mail delivery.

The interim procedures required certain documents to be filed via fax or e-mail, by an overnight delivery service other than the U.S. Postal Service, or by hand-delivery to the commission’s Capitol Heights, Md. location.

Since that time, mail delivery in the Washington areas has improved and the FCC has implemented its own processes to combat the threat of contamination of incoming mail. The commission also has expanded its online filing capabilities.

Therefore, the agency decided to rescind the interim procedures effective Sept. 25. After that date, filings will no longer be accepted by facsimile or e-mail unless otherwise authorized by the FCC’s rules.
