§ 1.915 General application requirements.
(a) General requirement. Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this
section, for all Wireless Radio Services, station licenses, as defined
in section 308(a) of the Communications Act, as amended, operator
licenses, modifications or renewals of licenses, assignments or
transfers of control of station licenses or any rights thereunder, and
waiver requests associated with any of the foregoing shall be granted
only upon an application filed pursuant to § § 1.913 through 1.917 of
(b)(1) Exception for emergency filings. The Commission may grant
station licenses, or modifications or renewals thereof, without the
filing of a formal application in the following cases:
(i) an emergency found by the Commission to involve danger to life or
property or to be due to damage to equipment;
(ii) a national emergency proclaimed by the President or declared by
the Congress and during the continuance of any war in which the United
States is engaged, when such action is necessary for the national
defense or security or otherwise in furtherance of the war effort; or
(iii) an emergency where the Commission finds that it would not be
feasible to secure renewal applications from existing licensees or
otherwise to follow normal licensing procedures.
(2) No such authorization shall be granted for or continue in effect
beyond the period of the emergency or war requiring it. The procedures
to be followed for emergency requests submitted under this subparagraph
are the same as for seeking special temporary authority under § 1.931 of
this part. After the end of the period of emergency, the party must
submit its request by filing the appropriate FCC form in accordance
with paragraph (a) of this section.
