FCC Releases Text of Rulemaking Proposing Sweeping Changes to Regulation of International Telecom Providers Operating in the US
As discussed in our firm’s April 21st Client Advisory, the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC” or “Commission”) announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed rules requiring all companies providing international telecommunications services pursuant to Section 214 authorization (214 License) to file renewal applications every ten (10) years; also ordering all 214 license holders to comply with a one-time information update.
The NPRM and Order have been released by the FCC. Upon publication in the Federal Register, Comments and Reply Comments on the NPRM will be due in 30 and 60 days, respectively.
The firm is continuing to monitor this development and will update once the Office of Management and Business (“OMB”) has approved the NPRM. Our firm will announce the Comment and Reply Comment deadlines when they are established. In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like to begin preparing to submit Comments in the proceeding, please contact the attorney assigned to your account or Jonathan S. Marashlian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
