Red Light Display System
NOTE: The FCC accounting system will be down between 8pm EDT 4/25/2018 and 4/30/2018 (time TBD) due to maintenance. During this period you will be able to make payments without interruption. However, it may take up to 5 business days for your payment to clear. The red/green status of your FRN may not be updated during this period.

Red Light Display System - Login

Welcome to the Red Light Display (RLD) system, a tool that allows you to check your current Red Light status with the FCC. To get started, log in with your FCC Registration Number (FRN) and password or FCC Username and password.

Any debt items found will prevent you from receiving benefits from the FCC until the delinquency is resolved; the system will indicate that you have a RED light status and lists all delinquent debt items. The absence of delinquent debt items results in a GREEN light status and enables you to receive FCC benefits.

If logging in with your secure FCC Registration Number (FRN) and password, the RLD system will search for delinquent debt items for the FRN used to log in as well as all FRNs with the same Tax Payer Identification Number (TIN).

If logging in with your secure FCC Username and password, the RLD system will prompt you to choose an FCC Registration Number (FRN) with a "Manage Financial Info" permission associated with the Username. Once an FRN has been selected, the RLD system will search for delinquent debt items for the FRN selected as well as all FRNs with the same Tax Payer Identification Number (TIN).

If you resolve a debt item that is causing a RED light status, the FCC's financial systems, including the RLD system, may not be immediately updated. The RLD system is updated once each business day at about 7 a.m., ET.

Please Note: Users are now able to log in with a Username account created through the FCC User Registration System.  Registering for a Username will allow a user to create, associate, and manage multiple FRNs through the Commission Registration System (CORES).  For now, users may also continue to log into the Red Light Display system with an FRN.
