    Needs and Uses: On September 27, 2019, the Commission released the 
Access Arbitrage Order, WC Docket No. 18-155, FCC 19-94, making access-
stimulating local exchange carriers (LECs) financially responsible for 
the terminating tandem switching and transport service access charges 
associated with the delivery of traffic from an interexchange carrier 
(IXC) to the access-stimulating LEC end office or its functional 
equivalent. The Access Arbitrage Order required that, within 45 days of 
its effective date, access-stimulating LECs remove any existing tariff 
provisions for terminating tandem switching or terminating tandem 
switched transport access charges. Affected intermediate access 
providers have the same time period to prepare any tariff revisions 
which they may wish to file. The Access Arbitrage Order also required 
that access-stimulating LECs provide notice of their assumption of that

with the Commission and with any affected IXCs and intermediate access 
providers.
    The information collected through carriers' tariffs is used by the 
Commission and state commissions to determine whether services offered 
are just and reasonable, as the Act requires. The tariffs and any 
supporting documentation are examined in order to determine if the 
services are offered in a just and reasonable manner.
