FCC Form 479
Certification of CIPA Compliance

The FCC Form 479, Certification by Administrative Authority to Billed Entity of Compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act, provides notification to a Billed Entity by an Administrative Authority of the status of the Administrative Authority's compliance for the purposes of CIPA. The Billed Entity will then certify on its FCC Form 486, Receipt of Service Confirmation Form, that it has collected duly completed and signed Forms 479 from Administrative Authorities that the Billed Entity represents. Starting in Funding Year 2002 (the Funding Year beginning July 1, 2002), Form 479 also provides notification to the Billed Entity of a request for waiver by the Administrative Authority.
