AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Notice; request for comments.

SUMMARY:

As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burden and as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), the Federal Communications Commission invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the following information collection(s). Comments are requested concerning: whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; the accuracy of the Commission's burden estimate; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and ways to further reduce the information burden for small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees.

The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) that does not display a valid OMB control number.

The Commission's Fourth Memorandum Opinion and Order (MO&O) in FCC 00-326, CC Docket No. 94-102, sets forth guidelines for filing successful requests for waiver of E911 Phase II rules. Wireless carriers are instructed to submit waiver requests that are specific, focused and limited in scope, and with a clear path to compliance. A waiver request must specify the solutions considered and explain why none could be employed in a way that complies with the Phase II rules. If deployment must be delayed, the carrier should specify the reason for the delay and provide a revised schedule.

The information submitted by petitioners is used to ensure that carriers comply with critical Phase II requirements in an orderly, timely and comprehensive fashion with no unnecessary delay.

Section 87.109 of the Commission's rules require that a station at a fixed location in the international aeronautical mobile service (IAMS) must maintain a log (written or automatic log) in accordance with the Annex 10 provisions of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Convention. This log is necessary to document the quality of service provided by fixed stations, including the harmful interference, equipment failure, and logging of distress and safety calls where applicable.
