SB QST ARL ARLB014
ARLB014 FCC Auto-Registration Feature for Exam Applicants to be
Discontinued

Auto-registration in the FCC Commission Registration System (CORES)
amateur radio exam for candidates using a Social Security number
will be discontinued on May 20, 2021. Applicants must use an FCC
Registration Number (FRN) for all license transactions with the FCC.
Examinees must register in CORES and receive an FRN before exam day.
Starting on May 20, electronic batch filed applications that do not
include a candidate’s FRN will be rejected. The Social
Security/Licensee ID Field will be disabled.

The CORES website can be accessed at:

https://apps.fcc.gov/cores/userLogin.do .

An instructional video provides step-by-step instructions on how to
establish a CORES account, which is necessary for licensees to make
administrative updates and download electronic license
authorizations.

The instructional video can be found at, https://www.fcc.gov/rofrn .

After June 29, all filers must provide an email address on all
applications. When an email is provided, applicants will receive an
official electronic copy of their licenses once granted (allow
incoming email from authorizations@fcc.gov). If no email is provided
when filing on or after June 29, applications will be rejected. ARRL
VEC suggests that those without access to email to use the email
address of a family member or friend.

Further information about providing an email address can be found
at,

.

Licensees need to log in to the Universal Licensing System (ULS) to
download their authorizations. The FCC no longer issues paper
copies.
