The Federal Communications Commission will transition to its new Electronic Comment Filing System ("ECFS") system on the morning of Monday, June 20, 2016. This will be a "hard launch," meaning that the legacy system will no longer be available after the transition. All documents in the legacy system will be accessible in the new system, and saved links (bookmarks or favorites) to documents and proceedings should not need to be adjusted. This modernization project is expected to significantly improve the resiliency and performance of ECFS.
