SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the Order, released May 15, 2001, the Commission adopted streamlined procedures to replace the burdensome waiver process for the carrier-to-carrier sale or transfer of subscriber bases. The Commission's new procedures provide for an acquiring carrier to simply self-certify to the Commission, in advance of the transfer, that the carrier will follow the required procedures. This will protect the interests of the affected subscribers by giving them adequate advance notice of the carrier change and ensuring that the change will not cause them financial harm. A summary of the Order was published in the Federal Register. 66 FR 28117 (May 22, 2001). The subject heading in the summary was corrected in a document published in the Federal Register. 66 FR 30334 (June 6, 2001). The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the information collections contained in section 64.1120(e) on June 7, 2001. OMB. No. 3060-0973. The rules adopted in the Order will take effect on June 21, 2001.
