Final rules; announcement of effective date.


This rule announces the effective date of the rule published on January 14, 2002. Those rules amended the Commission's rules governing streamlined processing for submarine cable landing licenses. The Commission adopted measures designed to enable international carriers to respond to the demands of the market with minimal regulatory oversight and delay, saving time and resources for both the industry and government, while preserving the Commission's ability to guard against anti-competitive behavior.


Sections 1.767(a)(7) through (a)(9),(a)(11), (g)(1) through (g)(14), (j), (k), (l)(1), (l)(2), (m)(1) through (m)(2), and 1.768(a) through (i) published at 67 FR 1615 are effective March 15, 2002.
