Form Number: N/A. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities, Not-for-profit institutions and State, Local or Tribal government. Number of Respondents and Reponses: 645 respondents; 645 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 8 hours. Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement, third party disclosure requirement and on occasion reporting requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. Section 251 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. Total Annual Burden: 5,160 hours. Total Annual Cost: No Cost. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission is not requesting respondents to submit or disclose confidential information. However, in certain circumstances, respondents may voluntarily choose to submit confidential information pursuant to applicable confidentiality rules. Needs and Uses: In the Order on Remand, the Commission imposed unbundling obligations in a more targeted manner where requesting carriers have undertaken their own facilities-based investments and will be using UNEs (unbundled network elements) in conjunction with selfprovisioned facilities. The Commission also eliminated the subdelegation of authority to state commissions adopted in the previous order. Prior to the issuance of the Order, the Commission sought comment on issues relating to combinations of UNEs, called ‘‘enhanced extended links’’ (EELs), in order to effectively tailor access to EELs to those carriers seeking to provide significant local usage to end users. In the Order, the Commission adopted three specific service eligibility criteria for access to EELs in accordance with Commission rules. Federal Communications Commission.
