While the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has not decided whether, or when, to have another national EAS test this year, the FCC’s EAS rules provide for yearly updates to the Form One information in the Electronic Test Reporting System (ETRS). On June 26, the FCC released a Public Notice containing instructions on how to register for ETRS using the Commission Registration System (CORES). Among the improvements made to the ETRS in 2017 is that filers will now use a single account to file on behalf of multiple FCC Registration Numbers (FRNs).

The Commission will release a Public Notice in July announcing the
availability of ETRS Form One, and the date by which EAS
participants will be required to update their ETRS Form One
information. Instructions for updating Form One are linked below. We suggest you hold on to these pending release of the July Public Notice.
