LPFM Waiver on New EAS Reporting Duty Requested

In November 2017 LPFM  an advocacy group petitioned the FCC for relief to LPFM radio stations concerning meeting new multilingual EAS reporting requirements.

Citing low publicity surrounding an order adopted by the FCC in March 2016  and lack of input from LPFM stations, REC Networks has  filed a motion for either a blanket waiver or extension of time for LPFMs.

Currently the FCC has established that all EAS participants must report some EAS details to their State Emergency Communications Committees by Nov. 6. The information includes:

  • Description of any actions taken by the EAS participant to make EAS alert content available in languages other than English to its non-English speaking audiences; and
  • Description of any future actions planned by the EAS participant to provide EAS alert content in languages other than English to its non-English speaking audiences, as well as an explanation of the decision to plan/not plan such actions.

 

A separate reporting requirement due by Nov. 13, known as Form Three,  should detail the results of the most recent National EAS Test.
