CORES Law and Legal Definition

CORES is the abbreviation for the Commission Registration System of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). It is a registration system for entities filing applications or making payments with the FCC. The FCC Registration Number (FRN) that is assigned to an entity registering with FCC is obtained using the CORES.

The CORES will assign a unique 10-digit FRN to the applicant. This number can be obtained both on-line and manually. The FRN will be used for all regulatees, licensees, and others with financial transactions.
