New User-Specific Id Requirements to Access The FCC’s Commission Registration System (CORES)

This Public Notice announces and describes the Commission’s upcoming plans to modify the Commission’s Registration System (“CORES”). These modifications, which will take effect on or about September 1, 2016, will implement several user-specific identification requirements designed to enhance security and makes CORES more user friendly.Specifically, these changes will:

– Implement a requirement for existing and new users to designate user-specific IDs (Usernames) to access FCC Registration Numbers (FRNs) and related records;

– Allow registrants to establish multiple Usernames for each FRN with different levels of access;

– Require users to provide a valid e-mail address for online access to the system; and

– Establish password-recovery security questions specific to each user.
