Reminder: CPNI Certifications Due March 1, 2022

If a telecommunications provider fails to comply with the rules or the certification requirement, the Commission may impose a forfeiture. The certification filing can be electronically submitted in EB Docket No. 06-36 in ECFS or by using the FCC’s online CPNI web page at: http://apps.fcc.gov/eb/CPNI/index.cfm. The 2-step CPNI template should be completed, and the following file attachments should also be uploaded:
