FCC reevaluates SHAKEN extensions

The FCC Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB) did their annual reevaluation of SHAKEN implementation extensions, as required by the TRACED Act. Here’s what happened.

Small voice service provider extension

There are two updates on this:

  1. In the Fourth Report and Order, the SHAKEN implementation deadline for non-facilities-based voice service providers was shorted by one year, to June 30, 2022.
  2. The WCB kept the extension for facilities-based small voice service providers as is, with a deadline of June 30, 2023.

Voice service providers than cannot obtain a SPC token

The WCB kept this extension as is. However, they noted that the STI Governance Authority modified its policy to expand eligibility to receive a SPC token. So, this extension remains in place but is essentially moot.

Services scheduled for Section 214 discontinuance

The WCB kept this extension in place as is. An application for Section 214 discontinuance must have been filed by June 30, 2021, to be eligible for this one year extension. Providers using this extension have until June 30, 2022, to either discontinue the service or implement SHAKEN.

See the Commission’s Public Notice for further details.
