FCC issues public notice on SHAKEN and robocall mitigation June 30 deadline

The FCC issued a public notice reminder for the June 30 SHAKEN and robocall mitigation implementation deadlines. They also explained potential enforcement actions. Here’s a summary.

  • The TRACED Act requires the FCC to issue orders in regard to STIR/SHAKEN call authentication.
  • The Commission issued their First Order that required voice service providers to implement SHAKEN by June 30, 2021.
  • They issued their Second Order that:
    • Provided extensions for certain providers
    • Required those taking extensions to deploy a robocall mitigation program
    • Required all providers to file a certification in the Robocall Mitigation Database.

In a Public Notice on June 21, 2021, nine days before the deadline, the Commission reminded providers of these requirements.

Enforcement

In their notice, the Commission stated that service providers that fail to meet these requirements may be subject to appropriate enforcement action, which may include imposition of a forfeiture.

Beginning September 28, 2021, intermediate providers and voice service providers may not accept traffic directly from voice service providers that are not listed in the database.
