Impact of Shutdown on Filing Deadlines

Filing deadlines that pass during the period of suspension, including January 3, will be extended automatically and due on the second day that operations resume. For example, if funding were restored on a Monday, the FCC would resume operations on Tuesday and filings would be due on Wednesday. The filing extension applies only to due dates that pass during the shutdown period. The FCC is not automatically extending any deadlines that fall after operations have resumed but will consider whether to do so on a case-by-case basis. Licenses for Special Temporary Authority (STAs) that expire while operations are suspended are automatically extended to the day after regular operations resume.
