  • Last week, the FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau issued a Public Notice seeking comment on its 911 reliability rules. The Commission seeks comment on the current reliability rules, and whether they should continue to require Covered 911 Service Providers to certify compliance annually. In the alternative, the Commission asks if they should replace these rules with a general standard requiring Covered 911 Service Providers to take reasonable measures to ensure reliability. The Commission also seeks comment on whether the definition of Covered 911 Service Provider and the PSAP outage reporting rules should be updated. Comments are due July 16, 2018 and Reply Comments are due August 13, 2018.
