The FCC Headquarters Relocates The FCC Headquarters have moved. It’s new address is 45 L St. NE, Washington, DC 20554. This change is effective immediately. Last spring, the FCC had announced plans to move but it was temporarily postponed due to the global pandemic covid-19.
Alike many other federal agencies, The FCC has its own zip code. Any mail that is in delivery via USPS that was sent to the former address will have no disruption. It’s important to note, that the FCC still prohibits the delivery of hand-carried documents, as well as all covid-19 restrictions/ instructions are valid at the new location.
“The FCC continues to balance its efforts to be accessible to the public with the need for heightened security, health, and safety measures and encourages the use of the commissions electronic comment filing system (ECFS) to facilitate the filing of applications and other documents when possible.”
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, professional movers completed the entire move with no employees around, as they were working at home. There was an attempt to let employees back into headquarters last summer to pack up all of their belongings and offices, but the plan was scrapped after multiple employees had tested positive for covid-19.
Work From Home
Staff will continue to work from home and will not be expected to be physically present at work until they have permission to access their new offices before next June.
Last spring, the FCC announced the adoption of the new FCC seal. The redesign is the product of an agency-wide contest that solicited proposals from contractors and employees. The design, which was revised, incorporates several elements such as: communications technologies, four stars on the outer seal border, drawing from the legacy of the predecessor Federal Radio Commission (FRC) seal, retaining the three-wire dipole supported by two towers, 18 stars on the shield, recognizing the current number of beaures and offices, and the eagle and shield, identifying the FCC as a federal government agency.
The Official Use
Official use of the seal was supposed to start after the completion of the FCC’s move from the Portals to its new location.
