Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program
The ABA Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP) allows TV & Radio to voluntarily be inspected by an authorized inspector, protecting you from an FCC routine inspection/fines (Unless the FCC is responding to a complaint or other red flag situation).
Once a station passes inspection, they receive an ABIP certificate, which last for lasts for three years. Should an FCC inspector come to your station for a routine inspection, they will see your certificate and should leave your station.
ABIP is far and away the most popular ABA benefit and the inspection cost is a fraction of the average FCC fine.
