  • The Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) released a Public Notice providing guidance to Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) providers on compliance certification requirements and upcoming deadlines. On February 3, 2015, the Commission adopted a rule that required CMRS providers to file quarterly reports regarding location technologies used on their networks. The rule includes a progressive timeline where CMRS providers must meet particular benchmarks with the ultimate goal of, among other things, providing “dispatchable location” or latitude/longitude location within 50 meters of all wireless 911 calls. The three-year benchmark was April 3, 2018; therefore, providers have until June 4, 2018 to certify compliance.
