On January 28, 2019, the FCC released a Public Notice announcing that it is extending the suspended filing deadlines due to the shutdown by one additional day. Deadlines for all filings that would have been due from January 3, 2019 through January 29, 2019 are now extended until Wednesday, January 30, 2019.

This deadline extension does not apply to filings in the Network Outage Reporting System and Disaster Information Reporting System or to filings related to spectrum auction activities, including broadcast incentive auction. Any Special Temporary Authorities (“STAs”) that would have expired from January 3, 2019 through January 29, 2019 are similarly extended until January 30, 2019, except in regard to STAs relating to post-incentive auction transition.

The FCC will soon issue further guidance on the revised filing deadlines.
