On Friday, January 27, the FCC further extended the deadline for entities to complete certain required Online Public Inspection File (“OPIF”) uploads and certain Licensing and Management System (“LMS”) filings. The new due date for these uploads will be February 28, 2023.

On January 6, 2023, following wide reports of technical challenges impacting licensee’s ability to upload documents to LMS and Public Files, the FCC announced that it would extend the deadline for certain filings to January 31st, 2023. The extension applied to all broadcast, cable, and satellite entities’ uploads due to be placed in the OPIF since January 1, 2023. It also extended the deadlines for Form 2100, Schedule H Annual Children’s Programming Reports, Form 2100, Schedule 303S, and Renewals of Broadcast Station Licenses.

With today’s Public Notice, the deadline for these uploads has been delayed to February 28th, 2023.

If you have questions or need assistance with OPIF access, or have questions about these deadlines, please contact your FHH attorney.
