On December 10, 2021, the Wireline Competition Bureau released a Public Notice seeking comment on seven voice service provider’s STIR/SHAKEN implementation verification certifications. You may recall that the FCC required voice service providers seeking an exemption from the STIR/SHAKEN implementation mandate because they were able to demonstrate voluntary early implementation progress to submit a certification and supporting statement by December 1, 2020 explaining how they met each prong of the exemption sought. In addition, the providers were required to submit a second certification after June 30, 2021 demonstrating that they had achieved the implementation goals to which it first certified.
Seven voice service providers sought and were granted exemptions for their IP networks. In September 2021, the Bureau released filing instructions for the required second implementation verification certifications, which all seven providers timely submitted. The Bureau now seeks comment on the certifications.
