How to obtain an Official FCC License Copy

FCC Goes Paperless: In order to streamline procedures and save money, the FCC stopped routinely printing and mailing licenses in February 2015. There are a number of ways a license holder can obtain an official copy of their license. The official license will display the FCC logo and the watermark "Official Copy" will be printed across each page of an official authorization from FCC. For more information, click this link To obtain an Official FCC License Copy, and scroll down to FCC RULES\INFO.
