On August 28, 2013, the SLD reported that the July 2013 FCC Form 472 is now available for online submission. The Form 472 is the Billed Entity Applicant Reimbursement (BEAR) form; however, service providers also need to approve the form before the SLD will accept it.

The FCC has sought comments from stakeholders on other forms and regulatory reforms. Further information on upcoming FCC comment deadlines can be found here.
