Mandatory Electronic Tariff Filing to Start November 17

In June, the FCC adopted an order requiring all carriers (not just incumbent carriers) to file FCC tariffs via an electronic portal. The FCC announced today that the new filing requirement will become effective on November 17th.

For carriers with FCC tariffs, you must file your base tariff within 60 days after November 17th. Anticipating potential server issues, the FCC encouraged carriers not to wait until the 60th day to make these filings.

For Operator Service Providers -- if there are any of you still out there -- informational tariffs must also be filed within this 60 day window.
