OMB Control Number: 3060-0973.

By streamlining the carrier change rules, the Commission will continue to protect consumers' interests and, at the same time, will ensure that its rules do not inadvertently inhibit routine business transactions. On July 16, 2004, the Commission released a First Order on Reconsideration and Fourth Order on Reconsideration which made a minor modification to 47 CFR 64.1120 (e) (iii).

The modification in the rule does not impose any new or modified information collection requirements. Also, the modification does not affect the existing annual hourly and cost changes.
