Alternative Broadcast “Mock” Inspection Program

The Missouri Broadcasters Association helped to create the Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP) which is now used by all state associations across the country in cooperation with the FCC.

How the program works:

  • Download the Mock Inspection Request Form.
  • Once the MBA receives your application, and the “Grace Period” box has been checked, we will notify the FCC that we are in an agreement with your company to perform an inspection within the next 150 days.
  • An inspector (contracted by the MBA) will schedule the inspection.  Non-compliance will not be reported to the FCC or any other governmental agency.
  • Stations found “in compliance” will be granted a three year Certificate of Compliance, and station(s) will be exempt from routine FCC inspections.
  • In the event of re-inspection, an additional $100 per site will be charged plus the inspector’s mileage.

Payment Options: 

  • Send a check with the application.
  • Call the MBA to pay by credit card.
  • Otherwise, the MBA will send an invoice.
