Effective Dates: Aug. 19, 2020

12. Amend §25.137 by revising paragraphs (b) and (d)(5) to read as follows:

§25.137   Requests for U.S. market access through non-U.S.-licensed space stations.

*   *   *   *   *

(b) Any request pursuant to paragraph (a) of this section must be filed electronically through the International Bureau Filing System and must include an exhibit providing legal and technical information for the non-U.S.-licensed space station of the kind that §25.114 or §25.122 or §25.123 would require in a license application for that space station, including but not limited to, information required to complete Schedule S. An applicant may satisfy this requirement by cross-referencing a pending application containing the requisite information or by citing a prior grant of authority to communicate via the space station in question in the same frequency bands to provide the same type of service.

*   *   *   *   *

(d) *  *  *

(5) Recipients of U.S. market access for NGSO-like satellite operation that have one market access request on file with the Commission in a particular frequency band, or one granted market access request for an unbuilt NGSO-like system in a particular frequency band, other than those filed or granted under the procedures in §25.122 or §25.123, will not be permitted to request access to the U.S. market through another NGSO-like system in that frequency band. This paragraph (d)(5) shall not apply to recipients of U.S. market access applying under §25.122 or §25.123.
