CPNI Compliance Report Due at the FCC on March 1, 2018.

The annual report required from telecommunications carriers and VoIP providers has been reinstated at the FCC, and reports are due March 1, 2018.  The CPNI Reporting Requirement was eliminated by the FCC in its 2016 Privacy Order dated November 2, 2016.  However, that FCC order was repealed by the Congressional Review Act in April, 2017. Because the Congressional Review Act repealed the 2016 Privacy Order, the elimination of the CPNI reporting requirement was effectively repealed. As a result, the CPNI reporting requirement is reinstated, and companies should make this filing on March 1, 2018 and thereafter on an annual basis.  If you have any questions about the requirements to protect Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) or how to make your report to the FCC, contact FosterDanowsky.
