In the Report and Order, the Commission eliminated the effective competitive opportunities (ECO) test from sections 63.11(g)(2) and 63.18(k) of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 63.11(g)(2), 63.18(k), which apply to applications filed under section 63.18, 47 CFR 63.18, for authority to provide U.S.-international telecommunications service pursuant to section 214 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (Communications Act), 47 U.S.C. 214, and to foreign carrier affiliation notifications filed under section 63.11 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 63.11. The Commission is also making adjustments to the hour and cost burdens associated with other rules and requirements covered by this information collection. The information will be used by the Commission staff in carrying out its duties under the Communications Act. The information collections are necessary largely to determine the qualifications of applicants to provide common carrier international telecommunications service, including applicants that are, or are affiliated with, foreign carriers, and to determine whether and under what conditions the authorizations are in the public interest, convenience, and necessity. The information collections are also necessary to maintain effective oversight of U.S. international carriers generally. If the collections are not conducted or are conducted less frequently, applicants will not obtain the authorizations necessary to provide telecommunications services, and the Commission will be unable to carry out its mandate under the Communications Act. In addition, without the information collections, the United States would jeopardize its ability to fulfill the U.S. obligations as negotiated under the WTO Basic Telecom Agreement because these collections are imperative to detecting and deterring anticompetitive conduct.

is requesting that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve a 
revision of OMB Control No. 3060-0944. The purpose of this revision is 
to obtain OMB approval of rules adopted in the Commission's Report and 
Order in IB Docket No. 12-299, FCC 14-48, adopted and released on 
August 22, 2014 (Report and Order). In the Report and Order, the 
Commission eliminated the effective competitive opportunities (ECO) 
test from sections 1.767(a)(8) and 1.768(g)(2) of the Commission's 
rules, 47 CFR 1.767(a)(8), 1.768(g)(2), which apply to cable landing 
license applications filed under the Submarine Cable Landing License 
Act of 1921, 47 U.S.C. 34-39, and section 1.767 of the Commission's 
rules, 47 CFR 1.767, and to foreign carrier affiliation notifications

associated with other rules and requirements covered by this

out its duties under the Submarine Cable Landing License Act of 1921, 
47 U.S.C. 34-39, Executive Order 10530, section 5(a), and the 
Communications Act of 1934, as amended. The information collections are 
necessary largely to determine whether and under what conditions the 
Commission should grant a license for proposed submarine cables landing 
in the United States, including applicants that are, or are affiliated 
with, foreign carriers in the destination market of the proposed 
submarine cable. Pursuant to Executive Order No. 10530, the Commission 
has been delegated the President's authority under the Cable Landing 
License Act to grant cable landing licenses, provided that the 
Commission must obtain the approval of the State Department and seek 
advice from other government agencies as appropriate. If the collection 
is not conducted or is conducted less frequently, applicants will not 
obtain the authorizations necessary to provide telecommunications 
services and facilities, and the Commission will be unable to carry out 
its mandate under the Cable Landing License Act and Executive Order 
10530. In addition, without the collection, the United States would 
jeopardize its ability to fulfill the U.S. obligations as negotiated 
under the World Trade Organization (WTO) Basic Telecom Agreement 
because certain of these information collection requirements are 
imperative to detecting and deterring anticompetitive conduct. They are 
also necessary to preserve the Executive Branch agencies' and the 
Commission's ability to review foreign investments for national 
security, law enforcement, foreign policy, and trade concerns.
