Environmental Assessment Checklist
Applicants and licensees, including tower owners, are required to comply
with all of the Commissions environmental rules, including 47 C.F.R.
§ 1.1307 and 47 C.F.R. § 1.1311 (i.e., environmental information
to be included in the environmental assessment (EA)). If an applicant
or licensee is required to file an EA with the Commission, the Wireless
Telecommunications Bureau will send deficiency letters to
individual licensees and applicants who have submitted EAs with applications
(i.e., a filed FCC Form 601 or FCC Form 854) that are deemed to be insufficient
because they lack necessary information or documentation.
The following checklist is now used as an attachment to each deficiency
letter to inform the licensee or applicant concerning compliance with
47 C.F.R. § 1.1307 of the Commissions rules which requires
them to determine whether a proposed tower or antenna structure may have
a significant effect on the environment.
