On August 16, 1999, the Commission adopted amended rules, pursuant to section 222 of the Communications Act, to protect CPNI and ensure that customers are able to control their personal information from unauthorized use, disclosure and access by common carriers. A summary of these amendments was published in the Federal Register (64 FR 53242, October 1, 1999). Because the rules imposed new information collection requirements that had not been approved by OMB, we stated that “the Commission will publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the effective dates of these rules.” The information collection requirements were approved by OMB on March 2, 2000. See OMB Nos. 3060-0715. Due to an oversight, the Commission failed to publish notice of OMB approval earlier, but we have treated the amendments as effective since March 2, 2000, as anticipated by our order. See Implementation of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, Telecommunications Carriers Use of Customer Proprietary Network Information and Other Customer Information and Implementation of the Non-Accounting Safeguards of section 271 and 272 of the Communications Act of 1934, as Amended, CC Docket Nos. 96-115 and 96-149, 14 FCC Rcd 14409, 14509, para. 207 (1999). This publication therefore satisfies the statement that the Commission would publish a document announcing the effective date of the rules.
