​FCC Licensing & Technical Specifications Division

The FCC Licensing & Technical Specifications Division manages FCC licenses, frequency coordination, engineering services, and maintains records of frequency use agreements between State and local Public Safety organizations. PSC obtains in the name of the State of California all FCC Licenses for interoperability frequencies for all public safety agencies.

PSC ensures that each agency's communications system(s) complies with federal regulations by submitting license applications to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This also includes submitting license information to regulatory committees (frequency coordinators) for review and concurrence. Furthermore, PSC will automatically renew licenses as necessary. To aid in regulatory pursuits, PSC has become a member of the National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC), the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials-International (APCO), the Forestry-Conservation Communications Association (FCCA) and the Regional Planning Committee’s for 700 and 800 MHz spectrum. Through these and other organizations, PSC Lobbies regulatory committees and the FCC to promote and defend the needs of State agencies. In this capacity, PSC provides assistance and guidance to State, county and local agencies on the use of radio spectrum.

The FCC Licensing & Technical Specifications Division assists the Radio Communications Branch and client State agencies in the development of technical specifications for radio communications equipment. Once the specifications are developed, the FCC Licensing & Technical Specifications Division facilitates the processing of client state agency purchase estimates and the bidding process by the California Department of Technology, Statewide Telecommunications Procurement Branch.
