Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP)

Helping Indiana television and radio stations to stay compliant is a key service of the Indiana Broadcasters Association. No station wants to face tens of thousands of dollars in fines from the FCC, especially when such fines can be prevented by keeping your facility up to date. That’s why we offer the Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP).

ABIP inspections can be scheduled at the discounted member rate of $450 per station.  Additional stations at the same transmitter location can be added at $50 per station.  IBA also offers ABIP inspections for non-members at $750 per station.

IBA offers the Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP) to help stations avoid violations. Upon receiving an ABIP Certificate of Compliance, we recommend posting it prominently at the entrance to your station. This certificate signals to the FCC that a spot inspection is not necessary, unless there has been a specific complaint about your station.

An ABIP Inspection checklist will be provided to stations once they have completed the submission process below.
