FCC Publishes 6th STIR/SHAKEN R&O in Fed. Reg.

On June 21, 2022, the FCC published in the Federal Register the Sixth Report and Order adopting a mandatory authentication requirement for the first intermediate providers in the call path, expanding robocall mitigation requirements for all providers, and adopting additional enforcement tools.

The Report and Order is effective August 21, 2023, except for the following provisions:

  • Section 64.6303(c) (instruction 9), which requires non-gateway intermediate providers receiving a call directly from an originating provider, not later than December 31, 2023, to either: (1) fully implement STIR/SHAKEN in its network; or (2) participate in industry groups working to develop a non-IP caller ID authentication solution.
  • Section 64.6305(d), (e), (f), and (g) (instruction 12), which updates the robocall mitigation certification requirements consistent with the new requirements adopted in the Order.

The effective dates of these provisions are delayed until OMB completes any necessary review and/or the Wireline Bureau announces the effective date(s) in a Public Notice.
