Chapter 8. Post Determination Action

Section 1. Action

8-1-1. FOLLOW-UP ACTION

If a determination requires supplemental notice (Form 7460-2) and the expiration date has passed without its receipt, action must be taken to determine construction status. To assist in this process, the automated “Follow-up Report" is available to identify those cases that require action. To determine construction status, air traffic must forward an automated Project Status Request (PSR) letter to the sponsor. If the sponsor fails to complete and return the PSR within 37 days, air traffic may send an automated Termination Project Status (TERPSR) letter to terminate the case.

NOTE-
If a previous PSR has been received for the case indicating an FCC application has been made for a construction permit, the case must not be terminated. Consequently, additional attempts must be made to determine construction status.

8-1-2. RECEIPT OF COMPLETED PSR

When a completed PSR is received, air traffic must:

a. Ensure that a copy of the Construction Permit (CP) documentation is attached (if the completed PSR indicates “Subject to CP").

1. If improper documentation or no documentation is attached, the case may be terminated. Distribute the termination letter as appropriate including a copy to the FCC.

2. If proper documentation is attached:

(a) Retain the completed PSR.

(b) Make a manual update to the automated OE case file to reflect a follow-up date consistent with the expiration of the CP. If a CP has been applied for but has not been issued, indicate one year later for the new follow-up date.

b. If the completed PSR indicates “Not Subject to a CP":

1. Retain the completed PSR.

2. Terminate the case (send automated TEREXP letter).

3. Distribute the termination letter as appropriate including a copy to the FCC.

c. If the completed PSR indicates “Project Abandoned," refer to paragraph 8-1-4.

d. If the completed PSR indicates “Project Complete," take action that is consistent with receipt of a completed Form 7460-2.

8-1-3. RECEIPT OF COMPLETED FORM 7460-2

When a completed Form 7460-2 is received, air traffic must immediately:

a. Review the form.

1. If the form indicates “Project Abandoned," follow procedures outlined in paragraph 8-1-4.

2. If the form indicates “Construction Dismantled," follow procedures outlined in paragraph 8-1-5.

b. Compare the information on the form with the study file.

1. If information on the form differs from the study file, take appropriate action to verify and/or resolve any differences.

2. If it is verified that submitted information differs from the original evaluation, initiate a new aeronautical study to reevaluate the new information.

c. Make special distribution of completed Form 7460-2, part 1, as necessary. If minimum flight altitudes require change or the potential for EMI exists, notify the FPT, FS, Technical Operations Services, and/or FM by the quickest means possible.

d. Distribute the completed Form 7460-2, part 2, as follows:

1. Send one copy of completed Form 7460-2 to NOS along with a copy of the map and survey (if applicable).

2.  Send a copy of completed Form 7460-2 to all interested offices including military, FSS, ARTCC E-MSAW, ARTS IIA, III, IIIA, and Micro E ARTS facilities.

e. Make the necessary manual updates to the automated OE case file.

8-1-4. PROCESSING PROJECT ABANDONED NOTIFICATION

When notification of an abandonment is received, air traffic must:

a. Retain the correspondence or record of conversation notifying that the project has been abandoned.

b. Terminate the case (send an automated TERABA letter).

c. Distribute the termination letter, as appropriate. If the termination is for an FCC involved structure, send a copy to the FCC.

8-1-5. PROCESSING DISMANTLEMENT NOTIFICATION

When notification of a dismantled structure is received, air traffic must:

a. Retain the correspondence notifying that the project has been dismantled.

b. Make a manual update to the automated OE case file if available.

c. Notify AeroNav, FCC (if it is involved), and FPT of the dismantled structure by sending a copy of the received correspondence.
