Getting Started With Universal Licensing System (ULS)
FILE - Use ULS Online Filing
Once you have registered in CORES, use ULS Online Filing to begin your
electronic filing process.
To use ULS for online filing, you must connect via the Web or through
the FCC network. You can find more information on how to access ULS
in Getting Connected.
Be aware that geographic coordinates provided to the Commission via
ULS must be referenced to the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83).
ULS provides access to resources that will help you convert
coordinates from NAD27 to NAD83.
ULS automatically calculates any fees owed at the completion of the
filing process when the application is submitted to the Commission.
If you'd like to estimate your fees prior to filing, please refer to
the appropriate FCC Fee
Printing Your License
Printed licenses are mailed when there is:
- a grant of application for new license,
- an administrative update or modification to an existing license, or
- a request for duplicate or an assignment of a license
Filing Ownership Information
Any filer subject to the ownership reporting requirements of 47 CFR 1.2112(a) must file a Form 602, or file an updated Form
602 if the ownership information on a previously filed Form 602 is not current, at the time it submits:
- An initial application for authorization (FCC Form 601)
- An application for license renewal (FCC Form 601)
- An application for assignment of authorization or transfer of control (FCC Form 603)
- A notification of consummation of a pro forma assignment of authorization or transfer of control (FCC Form 603) under the
Commission's forbearance procedures
To file Ownership Information electronically, the filer must select the ULS Online Filing button (located on the ULS Home page) and login with its FCC Registration Number (FRN) and password. In addition, an FRN, but not a password, is required for
each FCC regulated business and each disclosable interest holder listed in an ownership filing. For detailed information regarding
filing Ownership Information electronically, see the online help files that are part of the electronic filing system.
Electronic Batch Filing
For ULS users who submit a large volume of applications for wireless licenses, ULS has incorporated functionality to transmit
multiple applications simultaneously via electronic batch filing (EBF). ULS EBF is a process whereby an organization extracts
data out of its database and formats batch applications that can be processed by ULS. For more information, see Electronic Batch Filing.
