GPO Offers Print Edition of FCC Rules; Electronic Edition Available On-Line
FCC licensees need to stay up-to-date with FCC regulations. A convenient way to do this is to purchase the paperback editions of the rules from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). In Public Notice (DOC-280530), the FCC announced the October 2007 edition of Title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations is available for purchase from the Superintendent of Documents of the Government Printing Office.

This edition includes all amendments to the rules from Oct. 1, 2006, through Sept. 30, 2007.

Broadcasters will need the volume covering Parts 70-79 of Title 47 and the volume covering Parts 0 to 19 (Commission procedures, EAS, tower lighting, etc.). These volumes cost $61 each for domestic orders. See the Public Notice (DOC-280530) for a complete list of prices and ordering information.

As I’ve pointed out before, a more up-to-date version of the FCC rules is available from the GPO ECFR Web site— Select Title 47 from the drop-down menu, and then browse or print out the volumes as needed. Save the link as a bookmark and you’ll always have access to current FCC regulations. As quickly as technology and the FCC rules are changing, the printed edition is likely to be out of date by the time you receive it.
