FCC Reopens Online Filing System for 911 Service Reliability Certifications

1 min read

FCCSealThe Federal Communications Commission has reopened an electronic process for service providers to file annual 911 reliability certifications on FCC’s web-based portal.

The Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau said Friday that covered 911 service providers can submit certification information online through Oct. 15.

FCC’s rules mandate that providers of emergency communications services comply with requirements for 911 circuit diversity, central office backup power and diverse network monitoring.

The FCC required 911 service providers to file initial reliability certifications by Oct. 15, 2015 to confirm the progress they made to fulfill the three substantive certification requirements and 220 companies have undergone the 2015 certification process, PSHSB noted.

FCC now wants the service providers to show their full compliance with each of the three certification requirements through the 2016 certification process.
