OMB Control No.: 3060-0760.

OMB Approval Date: 3/7/2006.

Expiration Date: 3/31/2009.

Title: Access Charge Reform, CC Docket No. 96-262 (First Report and Order); Second Order on Reconsideration and Memorandum Opinion and Order, and Fifth Report and Order.

Form No.: N/A.

Estimated Annual Burden: 17 responses; 55,454 total annual burden hours; 3—1,575 hours per respondent.

Needs and Uses: This submission revises the collection to eliminate segments that are past the due dates and are no longer needed. This submission also revises the burden and respondent figures to provide more current and accurate data.

In the Fifth Report and Order (Order), CC Docket No. 96-262, Access Charge Reform, the Commission modified the rules that govern the provision of interstate access services by those price cap LECs subject to price regulation to advance the pro-competitive, de-regulatory national policies embodied in the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The pricing flexibility framework adopted in that order was designed to grant greater flexibility to price cap LECs as competition develops, while ensuring that: (1) Price cap LECs do not use pricing flexibility to deter efficient entry or engage in exclusionary pricing behavior; and (2) price cap LECs do not increase rates to unreasonable levels for customers that lack competitive alternatives.

OMB Control No.: 3060-0514.

OMB Approval Date: 3/24/2006.

Expiration Date: 3/31/2009.
