JSI Webinar on New Recordkeeping Rules, Feb. 25
The new Lifeline requirements were finally published in the Federal Register today. As suspected, the snow in Washington, D.C., in the last few weeks pushed back publication. The FCC has opted not to give additional time for Eligible Telecommunications Carriers (ETCs) to implement the recordkeeping requirement. Beginning today, you must retain not only a Lifeline customer’s proof of eligibility, but also any documentation required to reconcile an NLAD dispute in addition to the certification form.
The revised resale rule and the new snapshot rule’s effective dates will be August 15, 2016. More information about these rules can be found in our Jan. 27 Lifeline-related e-Lert.
JSI Webinar on Recordkeeping
To help JSI clients best comply with the new recordkeeping rule, JSI will host a webinar on Thursday, February 25 at 2 p.m. to go over the specific requirement and to provide best practices. This webinar, “Lifeline Recordkeeping: Protecting Your Customers (and Yourself),” is a continuation of our October 2015 webinar and will review Lifeline recordkeeping in general, with an emphasis on the new changes. We’ll talk about the new requirements, as well as ways to protect the information you are now required to collect and store.
The Lifeline Reform webinar is $249 for the first five connections ($50 for each additional connection from the same company). Lifeline Compliance Service subscribers will receive this webinar for free as part of their annual subscription. You’ll be sent the login information and slides shortly before the webinar begins on February 25.
