Hi, can somebody provide advise on how to issue Notice to Admit Facts please?

According to FCC rule 15.31(1) - "A party to a proceeding (the first party) may, by notice in accordance with the approved form, ask another party to admit, for the proceeding, the facts or documents specified in the notice. "

But according to Here " This form should not be filed with the Court unless you have been directed to do so by the Court. "

I am confused. Does it mean that Notice to Admit Facts can be directly send to the other party in private, without filing to the court ? Or does it mean that using this notice is not allowed at all, be private exchange or filed in court, unless court leave is granted?

You send it to the other party. Do not file it with the Court - that's for later depending on the outcome.
