SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A summary of the IP-Enabled Services First Report and Order was published in the Federal Register on June 29, 2005, 70 FR 37273. The IP-Enabled Services First Report and Order adopted rules requiring providers of interconnected voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service—meaning VoIP service that allows a user generally to receive calls originating from and to terminate calls to the public switched telephone network—to supply enhanced 911 capabilities to all of their customers as a standard feature of the service, rather than as an optional enhancement. The summary stated that with the exception of rules requiring Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval, the rules adopted in the IP-Enabled Services First Report and Order would become effective July 29, 2005. With regard to rules requiring OMB approval, the Commission stated that it would publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the effective date of these rules. The information collection requirements in § 9.5 have been approved by OMB. In a separate document published in this issue, the Commission has announced that OMB has approved the information collection requirements adopted in the IP-Enabled Services First Report and Order. With publication of the instant document in the Federal Register, all rules adopted in the IP-Enabled Services First Report and Order are effective July 29, 2005.
