To help determine whether Lifeline applicants and subscribers are eligible for Lifeline benefits, the Order contemplates that the USAC-operated LED will communicate with information systems and databases operated by other Federal and State agencies. Id. at 4011– 2, paras. 135–7. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 directs the FCC to leverage the National Verifier to verify applicants’ eligibility for EBBP. The purpose of this matching program is to verify the eligibility of EBBP applicants and subscribers by determining whether they receive SNAP and/or Medicaid benefits administered by Florida. Under FCC rules, consumers receiving these benefits qualify for Lifeline discounts and also for EBBP benefits. Categories of Individuals The categories of individuals whose information is involved in the matching program include, but are not limited to, those individuals who have applied for EBBP benefits; are currently receiving benefits; are individuals who enable another individual in their household to qualify for EBBP benefits; are minors whose status qualifies a parent or guardian for EBBP benefits; or are individuals who have received EBBP benefits. Categories of Records The categories of records involved in the matching program include, but are not limited to first name, last name, date of birth and the last four digits of the applicant’s Social Security Number. The National Verifier will transfer these data elements to Florida, which will respond either ‘‘yes’’ or ‘‘no’’ that the individual is enrolled in an EBBP-qualifying assistance program: State of Florida’s SNAP and/or Medicaid. System(s) of Records khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES The USAC records shared as part of this matching program reside in the EBBP system of records, FCC/WCB–3, Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, which was published in the Federal Register at 86 FR 11523 (Feb. 25, 2021).

The purpose of this matching program is to verify the eligibility of applicants to and subscribers of Lifeline (existing purpose) and the new Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, both of which are administered by USAC under the direction of the FCC. More information about these programs is provided in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below. DATES: Written comments are due on or before May 6, 2021.

Lifeline is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) under FCC direction. Consumers qualify for Lifeline through proof of income or participation in a qualifying program, such as Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), Federal Public Housing Assistance, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit, or various Tribal-specific federal assistance programs. The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBBP) was established by Congress in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, Public Law 116–260, 134 Stat. 1182. EBBP is a program that will help low-income Americans obtain discounted broadband service and one-time co-pay for a connected device (laptop, desktop computer or tablet). This program was created specifically to assist American families’ access to broadband, which has proven to be essential for work, school, and healthcare during the public health emergency that exists as a result of COVID–19. A household may qualify for the EBBP benefit under various criteria, including an individual qualifying for the FCC’s Lifeline program. In a Report and Order adopted on March 31, 2016, the Commission ordered USAC to create a National Lifeline Eligibility Verifier (‘‘National Verifier’’), including the National Lifeline Eligibility Database (LED), that would match data about Lifeline applicants and subscribers with other data sources to verify the eligibility of an applicant or subscriber. The Commission found that the National Verifier would reduce compliance costs for Lifeline service providers, improve service for Lifeline subscribers, and reduce waste, fraud, and abuse in the program. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 directs the FCC to leverage the National Verifier to verify applicants’ eligibility for EBBP. The purpose of this matching program is to verify the eligibility of Lifeline and EBBP applicants and subscribers by determining whether they receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits administered by Michigan. Under FCC rules, consumers receiving these benefits qualify for Lifeline discounts and also for EBBP benefits. Participating Non-Federal Agencies Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17841 Authority for Conducting the Matching Program The authority for the FCC’s EBBP is Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, Public Law 116–260, 134 Stat. 1182; 47 CFR part 54. The authority for the FCC’s Lifeline program is 47 U.S.C. 254; 47 CFR 54.400 et seq.; Lifeline and Link Up Reform and Modernization, et al., Third Report and Order, Further Report and Order, and Order on Reconsideration, 31 FCC Rcd 3962, 4006–21, paras. 126–66 (2016) (2016 Lifeline Modernization Order). Purpose(s) In the 2016 Lifeline Modernization Order, the FCC required USAC to develop and operate the National Verifier to improve efficiency and reduce waste, fraud, and abuse in the Lifeline program. The stated purpose of the National Verifier is ‘‘to increase the integrity and improve the performance of the Lifeline program for the benefit of a variety of Lifeline participants, including Lifeline providers, subscribers, states, community-based organizations, USAC, and the Commission.’’ 31 FCC Rcd 3962, 4006, para. 126. To help determine whether Lifeline applicants and subscribers are eligible for Lifeline benefits, the Order contemplates that the USAC-operated LED will communicate with information systems and databases operated by other Federal and State agencies. Id. at 4011– 2, paras. 135–7. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 directs the FCC to leverage the National Verifier to verify applicants’ eligibility for EBBP. The purpose of this modified matching agreement is to verify the eligibility of applicants and subscribers to Lifeline (existing purpose), as well as to the new EBBP and to other Federal programs that use qualification for Lifeline as an eligibility criterion. This new agreement would replace the existing agreement with Michigan, which permits matching only for the Lifeline program by checking an applicant’s/subscriber’s participation in Michigan’s SNAP, Medicaid or SSI program. Under FCC rules, consumers receiving these benefits qualify for Lifeline discounts and also for EBBP benefits.

Sec.  2.906 Supplier's Declaration of Conformity

    (a) Supplier's Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) is a procedure 
where the responsible party, as defined in Sec.  2.909, makes 
measurements or completes other procedures found acceptable to the 
Commission to ensure that the equipment complies with the appropriate 
technical standards. Submittal to the Commission of a sample unit or 
representative data demonstrating compliance is not required unless 
specifically requested pursuant to Sec.  2.945.
    (b) Supplier's Declaration of Conformity is applicable to all items 
subsequently marketed by the manufacturer, importer, or the responsible 
party that are identical, as defined in Sec.  2.908, to the sample 
tested and found acceptable by the manufacturer.

[[Page 17840]]

    (c) The responsible party may, if it desires, apply for 
Certification of a device subject to the Supplier's Declaration of 
Conformity. In such cases, all rules governing certification will apply 
to that device.

Sec.  2.909 Responsible Party

    (a) In the case of equipment that requires the issuance of a grant 
of certification, the party to whom that grant of certification is 
issued is responsible for the compliance of the equipment with the 
applicable standards. If the radio frequency equipment is modified by 
any party other than the grantee and that party is not working under 
the authorization of the grantee pursuant to Sec.  2.929(b), the party 
performing the modification is responsible for compliance of the 
product with the applicable administrative and technical provisions in 
this chapter.
    (b) For equipment subject to Supplier's Declaration of Conformity 
the party responsible for the compliance of the equipment with the 
applicable standards, who must be located in the United States (see 
Sec.  2.1077), is set forth as follows:
    (1) The manufacturer or, if the equipment is assembled from 
individual component parts and the resulting system is subject to 
authorization under Supplier's Declaration of Conformity, the 
assembler.
    (2) If the equipment by itself, or, a system is assembled from 
individual parts and the resulting system is subject to Supplier's 
Declaration of Conformity and that equipment or system is imported, the 
importer.
    (3) Retailers or original equipment manufacturers may enter into an 
agreement with the responsible party designated in paragraph (b)(1) or 
(b)(2) of this section to assume the responsibilities to ensure 
compliance of equipment and become the new responsible party.
    (4) If the radio frequency equipment is modified by any party not 
working under the authority of the responsible party, the party 
performing the modifications, if located within the U.S., or the 
importer, if the equipment is imported subsequent to the modifications, 
becomes the new responsible party.
    (c) If the end product or equipment is subject to both 
certification and Supplier's Declaration of Conformity (i.e., composite 
system), all the requirements of paragraphs (a) and (b) apply.
    (d) If, because of modifications performed subsequent to 
authorization, a new party becomes responsible for ensuring that a 
product complies with the technical standards and the new party does 
not obtain a new equipment authorization, the equipment shall be 
labeled, following the specifications in Sec.  2.925(d), with the 
following: ``This product has been modified by [insert name, address 
and telephone number or internet contact information of the party 
performing the modifications].''
    (e) In the case of transfer of control of equipment, as in the case 
of sale or merger of the responsible party, the new entity shall bear 
the responsibility of continued compliance of the equipment.
