The FCC Universal Licensing System (ULS) has resumed operations, including the Electronic Batch Filing system (EBF).
As of June 27, 2023, all systems have been reported to be working. However, visitors to the website will see a message referring them to Public Notice DA 23-529 for additional information and guidance on filing deadline extensions.
The systems were first reported unavailable on June 9, 2023. On Friday afternoon, June 23, the EBF system was restored. All VEC organizations use that system for filing exam sessions, individual applications, and club license applications. ARRL VEC staff worked late into Friday night to ensure all backlogged sessions and application files were transmitted to the FCC before the weekend. Approximately 350 backlogged files were successfully submitted to and processed by the FCC before the system’s normal shutdown at 8 PM.
ARRL is still monitoring the ULS system, and any further updates will be available at ARRL News.
