AOF Filing Types and Fees

Filing types supported by AOF are Original (or New Filing), Modifications, Notice of Change, Re-approvals or Re-certification, and Request for Responsible Party Codes (RPC). Filing types not currently supported are Transfer of Control or Ownership (partial and full), Blanket Modifications, and Administrative change requests -- see “Other Filings". These filing types must be sent directly to the ACTA Secretariat, as outlined in the "Guidelines and Procedures for submittal of information to ACTA" document.

All users of AOF are expected to be familiar with the filing guidelines and procedures of the ACTA. Knowledge of telecom and Part 68-specific terminology is also expected. Please have all of your information ready before filing to facilitate the process.
Important Notice: As a security precaution the AOF is designed with a 15 time out. After 15 minutes of inactivity you will be logged out of the AOF!

Definition of Filing Types supported by AOF are:

Original Filing (New Filing)
Original filings are required for covered equipment to be sold that previously has not been approved. Each filing must be complete and without reference to a previously submitted application.

Modification Filing
Modification Filings are required to maintain database accuracy when a change that alters the compliance characteristics has been made to the equipment, such as network interface circuitry, as filed under an original application.  A Modification Filing is required when these changes affect the contents of the ACTA-maintained database of approved Part 68 products, a Responsible Party's SDoC, or a TCB's Certificate.  A Modification Filing will be processed only when an Original Filing for the terminal equipment has previously been processed.

Note: Should any change alter the product label, it would require a new Original Filing.

Notice of Change (“Notice”)
Notice Filings are required to maintain database accuracy when no electrical change has been made to the equipment that alters the compliance characteristics, such as network interface circuitry, as filed under an original application. A notice Filing is required, for example, when a trade name, model number, or some feature that does not affect compliance characteristics is added to a previously approved device or system. Typically, such additions describe cosmetic variations, or are for marketing the product under a different trade name or model number.

Re-certification/Re-approval
Re-certification/Re-approval filings are required for limited cases requiring the processing of a new filing.

Note: Re-certification/Re-approval filings will result in a new ACTA “US” product-number. Products using the historical FCC Reg. number will be changed to the ACTA number.

Request for Responsible Party Codes (RPC)
The ACTA-specified Responsible Party Code (“RPC”) is a unique identifier assigned to the party responsible for terminal equipment. Historically, the FCC Common Carrier Bureau (“CCB”), now called the “Wireline Competition Bureau,” referred to this code as an Applicant or Grantee Code. Codes previously assigned by the FCC CCB, therefore, remain valid and, unless otherwise warranted, may continue to be used.

Filing Fees:

A fee for recording, updating, and maintaining information/content in the ACTA
Database is required. The basic fee for all filings is $825(US). An additional $95(US)
handling fee is required for Original, Modification and Notice of Change filings that are
submitted directly to the ACTA Secretariat for processing. Fees for filings submitted
directly to the ACTA Secretariat can be made by check payable to ATIS/ACTA
Secretariat, or by credit card using the “Credit Card Payment Form” in Appendix I. Fees
for filings submitted utilizing AOF must be paid via credit card.

The following provides a breakdown in associated filing fees. Parties are encouraged to visit the ACTA website at http://www.part68.org for updates or revisions to the appropriate Filing fee. Questions about the filing process or filing fees should be directed to AOFquestions@atis.org.
