In December 2001, the Commission announced new filing locations for paper documents. This is to remind you that those filing locations, as outlined in the table below, continue to be in effect. In addition, we have added to the table specific guidelines for filing electronic media.

Over the past several months the Commission has experienced an increase in the receipt of electronic media, e.g. diskettes, CDs, tapes, etc., sent to the agency via the United States Postal Service (USPS).

The USPS requires all First Class, Priority, and Express Mail addressed to Federal agencies with zip codes beginning with 202 thru 205 (which includes the FCC Headquarters at 445 12th Street, SW) to be irradiated (cleaned) prior to delivery. Because the irradiation process can have an adverse affect on certain items, including electronic media, the Commission now provides guidance on the filing of electronic media.

If you are sending this type of document and

using this delivery method...

It should be addressed for delivery to....

Hand-delivered or messenger-delivered paper filings or electronic media for the Commission's Secretary.

Note: To receive an official ``Office of the Secretary'' date stamp, documents must be addressed to Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary, Federal Communications Commission.
