Title: Revision of the Commission’s Rules to Ensure Compatibility with Enhanced 911 Emergency Calling Systems—Petition of the City of Richardson, TX, Order on Reconsideration II. Form No.: N/A. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit and not-for-profit institutions. Number of Respondents: 1,158. Estimated Time Per Response: 2–4 hours. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:37 Dec 27, 2005 Jkt 208001 Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement and third party disclosure requirement. Total Annual Burden: 6,576 hours. Total Annual Cost: N/A. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: N/A. Needs and Uses: This collection will be submitted as an extension (after this 60 day comment period) to OMB in order to obtain the full three year clearance. This collection contains various reporting and third party disclosure requirements. Under the Commission’s E911 rules, a wireless carrier must provide E911 service to a particular Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) within six months only if that PSAP makes a request for the service and is capable of receiving and utilizing the information provided. In the City of Richardson Order on Reconsideration, the Commission adopted rules clarifying what constitutes a valid PSAP request so as to trigger a wireless carrier’s obligation to provide service to a PSAP within six months. The Order on Reconsideration modified the E911 rules to provide additional clarification on the issue of PSAP readiness. The Commission’s actions were intended to facilitate the E911 implementation process by encouraging parties to communicate with each other early in the implementation process, and to maintain a constructive, on-going dialogue throughout the implementation process. The Order on Reconsideration contained three new public information collection burdens subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). First, the Commission adopted procedural guidelines for requesting documentation predictive of a PSAP’s readiness to receive and utilize the enhanced 911 service it has requested. Specifically, we provide that, where a wireless carrier requests such documentation from a PSAP within 15 days of receiving the PSAP’s request for E911 service, the PSAP must respond within 15 days or the carrier’s six-month implementation period will be tolled until such documentation is provided. Second, the Commission clarified that the readiness showing is for the purpose of commencing the wireless carrier’s sixmonth implementation obligation; and we established a procedure whereby wireless carriers that have completed all necessary steps toward E911 implementation are not dependent on PSAP readiness may have their compliance obligation temporarily tolled, if the PSAP is not ready to receive the information at the end of the six-month period and carrier files a certification to that effect with the PO 00000 Frm 00100 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Commission. Finally, the Commission clarified that nothing in our rules precludes wireless carriers and PSAPs from mutually agreeing to an implementation schedule different from that prescribed by our rules. The Commission will use the certification filings from wireless carriers to determine each carrier’s compliance with its E911 obligations. Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H.

    Section 259 requires incumbent local exchange carriers (LECs) to 
file any arrangements showing the conditions under which they share 
infrastructure. Section 259 also requires incumbent LECs to provide 
information on deployments of new services and equipment to qualifying 
carriers. Finally, the Commission requires incumbent LECs to provide 60 
day notice prior to terminating section 259 agreements.
    The Commission uses the information in the following ways: (1) The 
information collected under the requirement that LECs file any tariffs, 
contracts or other arrangements for infrastructure sharing will be made 
available for public inspection; (2) the information collected under 
the requirement that incumbent LECs provide timely information on 
planned deployments of new services and equipment will be provided to 
third parties (qualifying carriers); and (3) the information collected 
under the requirement that providing incumbent LECs furnish 60 days 
notice prior to termination of a section 259 sharing agreement will be 
provided to third parties, i.e., qualifying carriers, to protect 
customers from sudden changes in service.
