Proceedings and Initiatives


Wireless Service Rule Streamlining
In January 2004, the Commission by a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, commenced a proceeding to streamline and harmonize licensing provisions in the wireless radio services that were identified in part during the Commission's 2000 and 2002 biennial regulatory reviews pursuant to Section 11 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. The Commission proposed various amendments to Parts 1, 22, 24, 27, and 90 of the rules to modify or eliminate provisions that treat licensees differently and/or have become outdated as a result of technological change, supervening changes to related Commission rules, and/or increased competition within wireless radio services. Streamlining and harmonizing these rules would clarify spectrum rights and obligations for these licensees, fulfill the Commission's mandate under Section 11 of the Communications Act, and support recent efforts to maximize the public benefits derived from the use of the radio spectrum.
