On March 1, 2023, the Office of Economics and Analytics released a Public Notice reminding providers of advanced communication services of the March 31, 2023 filing deadline for Supply Chain Annual Reports. Pursuant to the below, providers of advanced communications service must report and certify whether they have purchased, rented, leased, or otherwise obtained any covered communications equipment or service on the Covered List.
- Any provider that reported and certified in 2022 that it had purchased, rented, leased, or otherwise obtained covered communications equipment, as well as those providers reporting newly obtained equipment or services, must submit an annual report before March 31, 2023 covering information as of December 31, 2022.
- A provider that does not have any covered communications equipment or services is required to file an initial report and certify as such through the online reporting portal. A provider that certified this in 2022 does not need to file an annual report in 2023 unless the provider has purchased, rented, leased, or otherwise obtained communications equipment or services that appears on the current Covered List. In that case, the provider must report information on such equipment when it is obtained and then annually as described in the Public Notice.
As a reminder, the Covered List is subject to change, and it is incumbent upon providers to remain alert to further notices announcing changes to the list.
