The FCC plans to roll out a redesigned website on the evening of Dec. 9, starting at 8 p.m. with a planned completion of 12 a.m. on Dec. 10. The Commission said in a public notice today that the new website “is designed to provide better functionality, an improved design, and better searchability and navigability.” The website display will automatically adjust based on the device being used to view it. It will have “a ‘toggle’ navigation that allows visitors to browse either by ‘Category’ or ‘Bureau and Office,’” the agency said.
“As part of this transition, the current website will no longer be available. Webpages and files that are on transition.fcc.gov that have not already been migrated to the new site will remain available. Existing bookmarks will be redirected to the appropriate content on the new site,” it added. It said that the electronic comment filing system (ECFS) and other interactive systems that it is continuing to work on will not be affected by this redesign. Users can alert the FCC to any content that needs updating or other “bugs” after the launch at https://prototype.fcc.gov/eform/submit/feedback.
