Definition Edit

Notice of Inquiry (NOI) is a term adopted by the Federal Communications Commission primarily for fact gathering, a way to seek comments from the public or industry on a specific issue. The NOI also states where and when comments may be submitted, where and when you can review comments others have made, and how to respond to those comments.

Overview Edit

After reviewing comments, the FCC may issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking or it may release a Report & Order (R&O) explaining what action or non-action is taken.
