911 Reliability Certifications Due October 16, 2023

Covered 911 Service Providers must file their Annual 911 Reliability Certification with the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) by Monday, October 16, 2023 via the FCC’s online portal at https://apps2.fcc.gov/rcs911/, which is now open. Covered 911 Service Providers are providers of 911, E911, or NG911 capabilities such as call routing, automatic location information (“ALI”), automatic number identification (“ANI”), or the functional equivalent of those capabilities, that directly serve a public safety answering point (“PSAP”), statewide default answering point, or appropriate local emergency authority, or that operate one or more central offices that directly serve a PSAP.

Covered 911 Service Providers are required to file the Annual Reliability Certification certifying full compliance with each of the three substantive certification requirements (or reasonable alternative measures): (1) 911 circuit diversity; (2) central office backup power; and (3) diverse network monitoring.
