Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP)

 

ARE YOU MISSING OUT ON AN IMPORTANT SCBA MEMBER BENEFIT? IS YOUR STATION DUE FOR AN ABIP INSPECTION?

 

Benefits:

  • All SCBA member stations can participate in this FCC-endorsed voluntary inspection.
  • Completing the ABIP insures a station that it is in compliance with FCC regulations.
  • Stations holding ABIP certificates are exempt from routine FCC inspections for a period of three years.

 

How It Works:

  • To enroll in the program, contact the SCBA office at 803-732-1186 or paula@scba.net.
  • SCBA will forward a contract with an estimated inspection date.
  • Stations must return the signed contract with payment prior to the inspection.
  • Upon successful completion of the inspection, stations are issued a certificate that is posted in the station and the FCC is notified of the certification.
  • If the station does not pass inspection, a grace period of 150 days from the date on the contract is provided to allow the station to make necessary corrections to successfully complete the inspection.
  • Stations may choose to notify the FCC when they enroll in the program, and immediately begin the immunity protection. Or they may choose not to notify the FCC of their enrollment, in which case the station has no protection from inspection.

 

All stations should take advantage of this valuable service. Be certain your station is in  compliance and immune from routine FCC inspection.

 

If your station currently holds an ABIP certificate, check the renewal date and schedule your next inspection well in advance to avoid any lapse in immunity.

Tips for Non-Profit Organizations

For local radio and television stations across South Carolina, community service is more than a passing concern.  It is a way of doing business.  Every day in South Carolina, from the biggest cities to the smallest towns and everywhere in between, broadcasters are going to bat for community charities, educating residents about important local issues, and delivering lifesaving information and relief in times of crisis or disaster.  Non-profit groups across the state know they can turn to their local radio and television stations for a helping hand.  The tradition of community service by South Carolina broadcasters is unmatched by any other industry and one that we pledge to uphold in the years ahead.  If you want to gain exposure for your charitable organization, school or other civic group, SCBA provides these guidelines for working with the media.
