Needs and Uses: In the Communications Act of 1934, as Start Printed Page 35390amended by the Telecommunications Act of 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC” or “Commission”) was given “exclusive jurisdiction” over those portions of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) that pertain to the United States.” To ensure that the numbering resources of the NANP continue to be used efficiently, the Commission requires that applications to state commissions from carriers must demonstrate that certain requirements are met before states grant any use of the safety valve mechanisms. It also requires that State commissions seeking to implement service-specific and/or technology-specific area code overlays must request delegated authority to do so. The information collected by the FCC and state commissions will be used to assist these regulatory bodies in their efforts to maximize the efficiency with which numbering resources in the NANP are utilized. The Commission notes that the Reporting Requirements for Federal Cost Recovery information collection requirement was a “one time” requirement that expired.* * *
