FCC Publishes Fifth Report and Order on EAS
Washington - Mar 22, 2012 - The Federal Communication Commission's Fifth Report and Order on EAS (EB Docket No. 04-296) has been published in the Federal Register, making the new rules active in 30 days. Likewise, this opens the window for petitions to be filed on the rules.
On April 21, 2012, stations using text-to-speech (TTS) must disable that function on CAP EAS devices unless a waiver is obtained.
Sage Alerting has already noted that its IPAWS update will be released in April 2012. Other EAS manufacturers will likely release updates as well now that the rules have been published.
