The Integrated Licensing Process (ILP) - Tutorial

Preparing an Application

Notice of Intent [see 18 CFR 5.5 External Link and 5.6 External Link]

  • A potential applicant for an original license or relicense must file a notification of its intent (NOI) to file a license application and a Pre-Application Document (PAD).
  • Applicants seeking a relicense must file the NOI and PAD between five and five and one half years before the expiration of the existing license.

An applicant can also file a request to use one of the Commission's other licensing processes, the Traditional Licensing Process or the Alternative Licensing Process. For additional information about these processes see our: Licensing Processes Section
