FCC updates requirements for international reporting

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has continued its efforts to streamline international reporting requirements for voice communications carriers, including voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) providers.

In a Second Report and Order issued in January 2013, the Commission has eliminated reporting requirements for over 1000 small carriers and reduced by over 75% the level of detail submitted by international service providers. The Commission estimates that these changes reduce the overall industry-wide reporting burden by almost 30%.

These reporting changes follow similar Commission action in 2011 which reduced to two the total number of required international reports, one on traffic and revenue and the other on circuit status, and which also eliminated a number of outdated international reporting requirements.
