Formal notice of OMB’s approval has finalized authorization of “Program,” “Medical Testing,” and “Compliance Testing” experimental licenses.

The FCC’s overhaul of its experimental licensing rules took effect back on May 29, 2013, except for certain rules relating to the new three new forms of experimental license – “Program,” “Medical Testing,” and “Compliance Testing” licenses – and a few others. Because these entail new collection of information, they required separate approval by the Office of Management and Budget.

According to a notice in the Federal Register, that approval is now in hand, so the entire experimental licensing regime has taken effect as of July 11, 2014. Click here for a complete and current set of the rules.
