The FCC was established by the Communications Act of 1934 as an independent United States government agency directly responsible to Congress. The Act, which has been amended over the years, charges the Commission with establishing policies to govern interstate and international communications by television, radio, wire, satellite and cable. In other words, the FCC regulates all forms of electronic communications both within and going out of the United States. The FCC works with the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and other organizations to establish international regulation.
