FCC ANNOUNCES A NEW FILING LOCATION FOR PAPER DOCUMENTS
NEW FILING LOCATION FOR PAPER DOCUMENTS. Effective December 18, 2001, the Commission's contractor, Vistronix, Inc., will begin receiving hand-delivered or messenger-delivered paper filings for the Commission's Secretary at a new location in downtown Washington, DC. The address is 236 Massachusetts Avenue, NE, Suite 110, Washington, DC 20002. The filing hours at this location will be 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. All hand deliveries must be held together with rubber bands or fasteners. Any envelopes must be disposed of before entering the building.
This facility is the only location where hand-delivered or messenger-delivered paper filings for the Commission's Secretary will be accepted. Accordingly, the Commission will no longer accept these filings at 9300 East Hampton Drive, Capitol Heights, MD 20743. In addition, this is a reminder that, effective October 18, the Commission discontinued receiving hand-delivered or messenger-delivered filings for the Secretary at its headquarters location at 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC 20554.
Other messenger-delivered documents, including documents sent by overnight mail (other than United States Postal Service (USPS) Express Mail and Priority Mail), must be addressed to 9300 East Hampton Drive, Capitol Heights, MD 20743. This location will be open 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The USPS first-class mail, Express Mail, and Priority Mail should continue to be addressed to the Commission's headquarters at 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC 20554. The USPS mail addressed to the Commission's headquarters actually goes to our Capitol Heights facility for screening prior to delivery at the Commission.
NEW FAX NUMBER FOR GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE. In light of recent events in Washington, DC, resulting in unforeseeable and understandable disruption of regular mail delivery, the Commission wants to ensure that it continues to be accessible and responsive to members of the public. For this reason, the Commission is providing a means for the public to fax general correspondence to the Commission, such as inquiries about the Commission's activities, status inquiries, fee-related questions, and any other correspondence that is not an official filing addressed to the Commission's Secretary.
The public may now fax correspondence to the Commission at 202-418-0188. If possible, please include the following information in the addressee block of the correspondence.
