EDOCS is a searchable database of FCC orders, Notices for Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), public notices, news releases, statements, and other documents posted to the FCC’s website since March 1996.

Search by using the DA/FCC number, file/report number, docket/rulemaking number, release date, or keywords found in the title or document description. You can also use additional filters and conduct advanced searches by using the fully-featured advanced search option.
