Total Annual Cost: $0. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission does not consider the fact of filing a certification to be confidential or the responses provided on the face of the certification. The Commission will treat as presumptively confidential and exempt from routine public disclosure under the federal Freedom of Information Act: (1) Descriptions and documentation of alternative measures to mitigate the risks of nonconformance with certification standards; (2) information detailing specific corrective actions taken; and (3) supplemental information requested by the Commission or Bureau with respect to a certification. Needs and Uses: This information collection is necessary to ensure that all Americans have access to reliable and resilient 911 communications, particularly in times of emergency, by requiring certain 911 service providers to certify implementation of key best practices or reasonable alternative measures. The information will be collected in the form of an electronically-filed, annual certification from each Covered 911 Service Provider, as defined in the Commission’s Report and Order, FCC 13–158, in which the provider will indicate whether it has implemented certain industry-backed best practices. Providers that are able to respond in the affirmative to all elements of the certification will be deemed to satisfy the ‘‘reasonable measures’’ requirement in Section 12.4(b) of the Commission’s rules. If a provider does not certify in the affirmative with respect to one or more elements of the certification, it must provide a brief explanation of what alternative measures it has taken, in light of the provider’s particular facts and circumstances, to ensure reliable 911 service with respect to that element(s). Similarly, a service provider may also respond by demonstrating that a particular certification element is not applicable to its networks and must include a brief explanation of why the element(s) does not apply. The information will be collected by the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, FCC, for review and analysis, to verify that Covered 911 PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Service Providers are taking reasonable measures to maintain reliable 911 service. In certain cases, based on the information included in the certifications and subsequent coordination with the provider, the Commission may require remedial action to correct vulnerabilities in a service provider’s 911 network if it determines that (a) the service provider has not, in fact, adhered to the best practices incorporated in the FCC’s rules, or (b) in the case of providers employing alternative measures, that those measures were not reasonably sufficient to mitigate the associated risks of failure in these key areas. The Commission delegated authority to the Bureau to review certification information and follow up with service providers as appropriate to address deficiencies revealed by the certification process. The purpose of the collection of this information is to verify that Covered 911 Service Providers are taking reasonable measures such that their networks comply with accepted best practices, and that, in the event they are not able to certify adherence to specific best practices, that they are taking reasonable alternative measures. The Commission adopted these rules in light of widespread 911 outages during the June 2012 derecho storm in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states, which revealed that multiple service providers did not take adequate precautions to maintain reliable service.

615a-1, and 615c.
    Total Annual Cost: $0.
    Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s).
    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission does not 
consider the fact of filing a certification to be confidential or the 
responses provided on the face of the certification. The Commission 
will treat as presumptively confidential and exempt from routine public 
disclosure under the federal Freedom of Information Act: (1) 
Descriptions and documentation of alternative measures to mitigate the 
risks of nonconformance with certification standards; (2) information 
detailing specific corrective actions taken; and (3) supplemental 
information requested by the Commission or Bureau with respect to a 
certification.
    Needs and Uses: This information collection is necessary to ensure 
that all Americans have access to reliable and resilient 911 
communications, particularly in times of emergency, by requiring 
certain 911 service providers to certify implementation of key best 
practices or reasonable alternative measures. The information will be 
collected in the form of an electronically-filed, annual certification 
from each Covered 911 Service Provider, as defined in the Commission's 
Report and Order, FCC 13-158, in which the provider will indicate 
whether it has implemented certain industry-backed best practices. 
Providers that are able to respond in the affirmative to all elements 
of the certification will be deemed to satisfy the ``reasonable 
measures'' requirement in Section 12.4(b) of the Commission's rules. If 
a provider does not certify in the affirmative with respect to one or 
more elements of the certification, it must provide a brief explanation 
of what alternative measures it has taken, in light of the provider's 
particular facts and circumstances, to ensure reliable 911 service with 
respect to that element(s). Similarly, a service provider may also 
respond by demonstrating that a particular certification element is not 
applicable to its networks and must include a brief explanation of why 
the element(s) does not apply.
    The information will be collected by the Public Safety and Homeland 
Security Bureau, FCC, for review and analysis, to verify that Covered 
911 Service Providers are taking reasonable measures to maintain 
reliable 911 service. In certain cases, based on the information 
included in the certifications and subsequent coordination with the 
provider, the Commission may require remedial action to correct 
vulnerabilities in a service provider's 911 network if it determines 
that (a) the service provider has not, in fact, adhered to the best 
practices incorporated in the FCC's rules, or (b) in the case of 
providers employing alternative measures, that those measures were not 
reasonably sufficient to mitigate the associated risks of failure in 
these key areas. The Commission delegated authority to the Bureau to 
review certification information and follow up with service providers 
as appropriate to address deficiencies revealed by the certification 
process.
    The purpose of the collection of this information is to verify that 
Covered 911 Service Providers are taking reasonable measures such that 
their networks comply with accepted best practices, and that, in the 
event they are not able to certify adherence to specific best 
practices, that they are taking reasonable alternative measures. The 
Commission adopted these rules in light of widespread 911 outages 
during the June 2012 derecho storm in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic 
states, which revealed that multiple service providers did not take 
adequate precautions to maintain reliable service.
