The Federal Communications Commission conducts unscheduled inspections of broadcast facilities, both randomly and when they have a reason to believe a problem exists. Put your station under the microscope and avoid FCC inspections for 3 years by participating in an "Alternative Broadcast Inspection". Under the alternative broadcast inspection program, the NMBA will dispatch an ABIP inspector to perform a complete FCC-type inspection of your station to ensure that it is in compliance with the Commission rules.
If your station is in compliance, a Certificate of Compliance will be issued and you will be exempt from random FCC inspections for three years from the date you requested the inspection. Please note, there are certain exceptions such as targeted inspections for safety matters related to towers, inspections responsive to a complaint, and some EEO and Political File matters.
If your station was found not to be in compliance, you will need to make the necessary corrections and provide the inspector with proof of correction and compliance. In some instances, a re-inspection may be required. Once everything is as it should be, you will be issued a certificate of compliance.
Complete the Request for Inspection Agreement and send it to the NMBA with the appropriate inspection fee. An inspection will occur soon after receipt of your request. The inspector will call to schedule a time. Payment must be made PRIOR to inspection.
