FCC Biennial Regulatory Review 2000

On January 17th 2000, the FCC issued its biennial regulatory review report for year 2000. The biennial review is conducted pursuant to Section 11 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 202(h) of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. These sections, collectively, require that Commission (1) to review biennially its regulations pertaining to Telecommunications service providers and broadcast ownership; and (2) to determine whether economic competition has made those regulations no longer necessary in the public interest.

The Commission has also released the staff report summarizing an extensive staff review of the Commission's rules. The report reflects staff recommendations rather than formal Commission opinions.
