A Public Notice has been released announcing that the annual Traffic and Revenue Reports (Section 43.62 reports) are due to the Commission by September 30, 2015. The filing window will open on August 17, 2015. These reports are generally due by July 31, but this year the filing window was postponed because the Commission revised the reporting rules and revamped the online filing system associated with this filing (see 2013 Second Report and Order). This filing requirement applies to:
- Any person or entity that holds U.S. International 214 authorization, whether or not it provided service in the preceding calendar year (the reporting period). Any U.S. International Service Provider that provided service during the reporting period must file a Traffic and Revenue Report, whether such provider operated by using its own facilities or by reselling the facilities or services of another provider.
- Any person or entity in the United States that provided International VoIP Service Connected to the PSTN during the reporting period.
- Any person or entity in the United States that provided international call completion services for IMTS or International VoIP Service Connected to the PSTN during the reporting period.
The International Traffic and Revenue Reports must be filed electronically using the new Section 43.62 Online Filing System. The Commission has released a Section 43.62 Filing Manual and a brief Technical Filing Guide, which explain the new requirements and new online system, respectively. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this filing.
