structures by or for the use of licensees of the FCC. The form is to be

the Tribal Historic Preservation Office (``THPO''), as appropriate, and 
the Commission before any construction or other installation activities 
on the site begins. Failure to provide the form and complete the review 
process under Section 106 of the NHPA prior to beginning construction 
may violate Section 110(k) of the NHPA and the Commission's rules.
    FCC Form 621, Collocation (CO) Submission Packet is to be completed

antennas on an existing communications tower or non-tower structure by

structures, and some collocations, to ensure that Tribal Nations have 
the requisite opportunity to participate in review prior to 
construction. To facilitate this coordination, Tribal Nations have 
designated areas of geographic preference, and they receive automated 
notifications based on the site coordinates provided in the filing. 
Applicants complete TCNS before filing a 620 or 621 and all the 
relevant data is pre-populated on the 620 and 621 when the forms are 
filed electronically.
