Introducing the New FCC. gov

Late last night we officially launched the new FCC. gov. The new site features a more responsive design, a new site navigation structure, plus an improved search capability.

Information Structures and Navigation

The site has relocated from a flat design with minimum linking between pages to a hierarchical design that utilizes cross-linking, menus, plus greater clarity of where you are on the site map. The new site navigation comes with a “toggle” capability that allows visitors to search by “Category” or “Bureau plus Office. ” Extensive user study revealed visitors to FCC. gov try some fine clear separation of consumer content and practitioner content. Using a toggle navigation allows us to meet the navigation choices of different site visitors.


The newest site features a new search application. The new search brings together results from both FCC. gov and the Electronic Document Management System (EDOCS) into a smooth search experience. The user interface furthermore allows for visitors to search only within FCC. gov and EDOCS and offers an array of facets to help further refine search results. Work will continue in the weeks and months ahead to carry on refining the relevancy of the search engine results. Over time, we would like to continue expanding on the unified searching capability to add new datasets to the application.

Updated Receptive Design

The design of the site has been upgraded to a more modern look-and-feel that is responsive to the device you are using. This means that the display will adjust depending on whether you are using a mobile gadget, tablet or computer. The site also utilizes brighter colors and more white space to direct eye focus and enhance the scanability of webpages. These improvements are intended to provide an easier user experience for site visitors navigating the website.

While we’ve completed the proceed to a new website, the FCC will continue to work with internal and external stakeholders to identify and fix any bugs, broken links, or missing content. Please inform us about any issues you find. You are able to continue to provide feedback to webfeedback@fcc. gov as we work to improve the website.
