The redesign will be conducted in two phases. The first phase went online July 16.

Changes were made to the site's home page, as well as pages for the agency's commissioners, Enforcement Bureau and Office of Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs, and wireless telecommunications and international affairs. The changes involve the formatting, fonts, colors and navigation of the site.

The second phase will switch the remainder of the site to the new design by the end of September. FCC last redesigned the site in 1999.
