OMB Control No.: 3060-1031.
Title: Revision of the Commission's Rules to Ensure Compatibility with Enhanced 911 Emergency Calling Systems: Petition of City of Richardson, TX; Order on Reconsideration.
Form No.: N/A.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Respondents: Business or other for-profit, not-for-profit institutions, and state, local or tribal government.
Number of Respondents: 1,358.
Estimated Time Per Response: 2-40 hours.

Total Annual Burden: 13,960 hours.
Total Annual Cost: N/A.
Needs and Uses: The Order on Reconsideration responds to two petitions for reconsideration of a previous Order which responded to a petition from the city of Richardson, TX. The current Order on Reconsideration contains three new information collection requirements. First, it allows wireless carriers to toll the six-month E911 implementation period if the carrier certifies that the requesting Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) is not E911 capable. Second, PSAPs may file a response to the carrier's certification. Third, the Order on Reconsideration clarifies that wireless carriers and PSAPs may mutually agree on an E911 implementation date other than that prescribed in the Commission's rules.
The Commission sought and obtained emergency OMB approval for this information collection on 1/16/03. The Commission is now seeking extension of this collection to obtain the full three year OMB approval.Start Signature
