Proposed Agenda

The Enforcement Bureau and the Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) provide panelist names and other information about two events in the Open Internet roundtable series: “Effective Enforcement of Open Internet Requirements” and “Technological Aspects of an Open Internet,” which will both take place on September 19, 2014. These workshops were previously announced in a Public Notice. At that time, it was unclear whether the workshop would be a “meeting” of the Commission. As such, that Public Notice was not published in the Federal Register. This Notice shall serve as notice that a quorum of Commissioners may be present at one or more roundtables, in compliance with Part 0, Subpart F of the Commission's rules. This Notice does not, however, change the “permit-but-disclose” status of the Open Internet proceeding under the Commission's ex parte rules.

Effective Enforcement of Open Internet Requirements

10:00-10:15 a.m. Welcome and Opening Remarks

10:15-12:30 p.m. Effective Enforcement of Open Internet Requirements

This roundtable will consider ways to enforce effectively the proposed new Open Internet rules, exploring the utility of various current and proposed enforcement tools in the Open Internet context and discussing how to design fair and accessible FCC dispute resolution processes for open Internet concerns.
