[authors: K.C. Halm, James W. Tomlinson]

The federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) recently approved the information collection requirements related to the February 2012 Report and Order of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) extending its outage reporting requirements to providers of interconnected voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) service. The new rules, which are explained in detail in our Feb. 28, 2012 advisory, will become effective on Dec. 16, 2012. The outage reporting requirements apply to both facilities-based and non-facilities-based interconnected VoIP providers.

Davis Wright Tremaine advises VoIP providers on the full array of FCC requirements pertaining to such services and can respond to any questions you may have regarding the foregoing FCC order or other issues arising under the FCC’s outage reporting rules.
