Submitting Comments:

When submitting comments to the FCC, be aware that:

  • Comments should include your name.

  • You must include the docket number or rulemaking number of the proceeding for the corresponding comment. The docket number or rulemaking number of the proceeding can be found on the first page of the FCC document or Public Notice opening the proceeding.

  • You can file a comment both electronically and in paper format.

  • Electronic comments must be filed by midnight Eastern Time on the date of the comment deadline.

  • Written comments must be filed by 7p.m. ET on the date of the comment deadline.

  • · Comments you submit to the FCC will be made public.

Filing Electronically:

The FCC's Electronic Comment Filing System (www.fcc.gov/ecfs) allows you to submit comments via the internet for docketed or rulemaking proceedings.

ECFS Express is a simplified comment filing process for consumers that is based on topics, rather than a docket or rulemaking number. ECFS Express lists the topics considered to be of most interest to consumers: https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/browse-popular-proceedings. By clicking on a topic, an individual can fill in personal information, write their comments and press send to file the comments.

Generally, you will file only one copy of an electronic comment, but if you are filing comments in a proceeding that lists multiple docket or rulemaking numbers on its front page, you must use the standard upload form and not ECFS Express. See ECFS FAQs for more information: www.fcc.gov/ecfs/help/ecfs

For assistance using ECFS, send an email to ECFS@fcc.gov, or call the ECFS Help Desk at (202) 418-0193, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET.
