In the Memorandum Opinion and Order on Reconsideration, issued in CC Docket No. 95-116, the Commission implements new and/or modified requirements. (1) In order to calculate a multi-region carrier's share of LNP administration costs, the agency needs a certification if that carrier cannot divide its revenue by LNP region and instead chooses to allocate such revenue by subscriber percentages. (2) To ensure that a non-LNP capable incumbent LEC participating in an extended area service calling plan with an LNP-capable carrier complies with LNP cost recovery law and rules, the agency needs the collection by tariff if such a carrier seeks to recover its query and LNP administration costs.

The information is collected and required by the Commission and will be used to implement Section 251 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.
