On October 1, 2020, the Wireline Competition Bureau (“the Bureau”) released a Public Notice (DA 20-1154) seeking comments on the North American Numbering Council (NANC) Report (“the Report”) recommending best practices related to caller ID authentication.  In the Report, the NANC recommends seven best practices related to: (1) subscriber vetting; (2) telephone number validation; (3) A-level attestation; (4) B- and C-level attestation; (5) third-party validation services; (6) international call originators; and (7) ongoing robocall mitigation programs.  The Bureau requests comments on the NANC’s recommendations and any additional or alternative best practices commenters believe would achieve the TRACED Act’s goal of ensuring the calling party is accurately identified.
