Public Information Collection Requirement Submitted to OMB for Review and Approval., 27568-27569 [E7-9429]

Download as PDF cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 27568 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 94 / Wednesday, May 16, 2007 / Notices Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) operators to provide service to Alaska and Hawaii if ‘‘technically feasible,’’ or to provide a technical analysis showing that such service is not technically feasible. In addition, some Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) operators and Non-geostationary Satellite Orbit Fixed Satellite Service (NGSO FSS) operators have similar geographic coverage requirements. For example, Ka-band NGSO FSS systems must provide service between 70 degrees North Latitude and 55 degrees South Latitude for at least 75 percent of every 24-hour period in accordance with section 25.145(c)(1) of the Commission’s rules. Finally, this certification will also apply to geographic service rules that take effect in the future. The addition of the certification will require modification of the FCC Form 312 which is housed in the International Bureau Filing System (‘‘MyIBFS’’), an electronic filing system. In 2005, the Commission received approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for mandatory electronic filing of all satellite and earth station applications. Therefore, all certifications must be filed with the Commission electronically in MyIBFS. This collection is used by the Commission staff in carrying out its duties concerning satellite communications as required by sections 301, 308, 309 and 310 of the Communications Act, 47 U.S.C. sections 301, 308, 309, 310. This collection is also used by the Commission staff in carrying out its duties under the World Trade Organizations (WTO) Basic Telecom Agreement. The information collection requirements accounted for in this collection are necessary to determine the technical and legal qualifications of applicants or licensees to operate a station, transfer or assign a license, and to determine whether the authorization is in the public interest, convenience and necessity. Without such information, the Commission could not determine whether to permit respondents to provide telecommunication services in the U.S. Therefore, the Commission would be unable to fulfill its statutory responsibilities in accordance with the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and the obligations imposed on parties to the WTO Basic Telecom Agreement.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 3060–1084. Title: Rules and Regulations Implementing Minimum Customer Account Record Exchange Obligations on All Local and Interexchange Carriers (CARE). Form No.: Not applicable. Type of Review: Revision to a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities. Number of Respondents: 1,778. Estimated Time per Response: 0.27 hours—6.7 hours. Frequency of Response: Annual reporting requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Total Annual Burden: 39,844 hours. Total Annual Cost: None. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: An assurance of confidentiality is not offered because this information collection does not require the collection of personal identifiable information (PII) from individuals. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: Not applicable. Needs and Uses: In addition to the existing information collection requirements that we previously approved by OMB, in the Order on Reconsideration, In the Matter of Rules and Regulations Implementing Minimum Customer Account Record Exchange Obligations on All Local Exchange Carriers (LECs) and Interexchange Carriers (IXCs) (2005 Report and Order), CG Docket No. 02– 386, FCC 06–134, which was released on September 13, 2006, the Commission concluded that minor modifications to 47 CFR 64.4002 are needed to clarity carriers’ respective obligations under that rule section. Paragraph 64.4002(d) is modified to require that LEC notify an IXC when the LEC has removed at its local switch a presubscribed customer of the IXC in connection with the customer’s selection of ‘‘no-PIC’’ (preferred interexchange carrier) status. In this context, the selection of ‘‘no-PIC’’ status by the customer refers to the selection of no carriers for interLATA (Local Access Transport and Area) service or no carrier for interLATA service. The Commission concludes that this modification is needed to ensure that an IXC does not continue billing a customer for non-usage-related monthly charges where that customer has contacted his current LEC or his current IXC to select ‘‘no-PIC’’ status. Paragraph 64.4002(e) of the Commission’s rules is modified to E:\FR\FM\16MYN1.SGM 16MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 94 / Wednesday, May 16, 2007 / Notices include the effective date of any changes to a customer’s local service account and the carrier identifications code of the customer’s IXC among the categories of information that must be provided to the IXC by the LEC. The Commission concludes that knowing the effective date of account changes will help IXCs to maintain accurate customer account information and that including the carrier identification code of the customer’s IXC will enable an IXC to verify that it is the proper recipient of the transmitted information. Paragraph 64.402(g) of the Commission’s rules is modified to make the information categories included in paragraph 64.402(g) consistent with those included in other LEC notifications requirements. Paragraph 64.4002(g) also is modified to require that when a customer changes LECs, but wishes to retain his current PIC, the new LEC must so notify the current PIC so that the current PIC does not erroneously assume, absent additional notification from the new LEC, that the customer also wishes to cancel his current PIC.

    Type of Review: Revision to a currently approved collection.
    Respondents: Business or other for-profit entities.
    Number of Respondents: 1,778.
    Estimated Time per Response: 0.27 hours--6.7 hours.
    Frequency of Response: Annual reporting requirement.
    Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits.
    Total Annual Burden: 39,844 hours.

    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: An assurance of 
confidentiality is not offered because this information collection does 
not require the collection of personal identifiable information (PII) 
from individuals.
    Privacy Act Impact Assessment: Not applicable.
    Needs and Uses: In addition to the existing information collection 
requirements that we previously approved by OMB, in the Order on 
Reconsideration, In the Matter of Rules and Regulations Implementing 
Minimum Customer Account Record Exchange Obligations on All Local 
Exchange Carriers (LECs) and Interexchange Carriers (IXCs) (2005 Report 
and Order), CG Docket No. 02-386, FCC 06-134, which was released on 
September 13, 2006, the Commission concluded that minor modifications 
to 47 CFR 64.4002 are needed to clarity carriers' respective 
obligations under that rule section.
    Paragraph 64.4002(d) is modified to require that LEC notify an IXC 
when the LEC has removed at its local switch a presubscribed customer 
of the IXC in connection with the customer's selection of ``no-PIC'' 
(preferred interexchange carrier) status. In this context, the 
selection of ``no-PIC'' status by the customer refers to the selection 
of no carriers for interLATA (Local Access Transport and Area) service 
or no carrier for interLATA service. The Commission concludes that this 
modification is needed to ensure that an IXC does not continue billing 
a customer for non-usage-related monthly charges where that customer 
has contacted his current LEC or his current IXC to select ``no-PIC'' 
status.
    Paragraph 64.4002(e) of the Commission's rules is modified to

[[Page 27569]]

include the effective date of any changes to a customer's local service 
account and the carrier identifications code of the customer's IXC 
among the categories of information that must be provided to the IXC by 
the LEC. The Commission concludes that knowing the effective date of 
account changes will help IXCs to maintain accurate customer account 
information and that including the carrier identification code of the 
customer's IXC will enable an IXC to verify that it is the proper 
recipient of the transmitted information.
    Paragraph 64.402(g) of the Commission's rules is modified to make 
the information categories included in paragraph 64.402(g) consistent 
with those included in other LEC notifications requirements. Paragraph 
64.4002(g) also is modified to require that when a customer changes 
LECs, but wishes to retain his current PIC, the new LEC must so notify 
the current PIC so that the current PIC does not erroneously assume, 
absent additional notification from the new LEC, that the customer also 
wishes to cancel his current PIC.
