On Monday, June 21, 2021, the FCC released a Public Notice (DA 21-727) reminding voice service providers and intermediate service providers of STIR/SHAKEN deadlines. All voice service providers and intermediate service providers not subject to an extension or exemption must implement the STIR/SHAKEN caller ID authentication framework in their Internet Protocol networks no later than June 30, 2021. Similarly, all voice service providers must file certifications regarding their efforts to stem illegal robocalls on their networks in the Robocall Mitigation Database no later than June 30, 2021. The Public Notice also reminds voice service providers and intermediate providers that failure to implement the authentication framework and/or failure to file the required certifications by the deadline may result in appropriate enforcement action. Further, beginning September 28, 2021, voice service providers and intermediate providers may not accept traffic directly from voice service providers who fail to comply and are not listed in the database.
