In this document, the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) eliminates unnecessary information, streamlines the filing of annual international traffic and revenue and circuit status reports, and modernizes the types of information it collects. The Commission found that the burdens of filing this information outweigh any benefit from the information. To simplify the collection of data on international telecommunications services, the Commission consolidated the traffic and revenue and circuit status reports into one rule and mandated a consolidated Filing Manual that will ensure that future changes to the reports will be coordinated. These actions are part of the Commission's review of its reporting requirements and are intended to remove unnecessary information collections and tailor its information collections to the current state of the international telecommunications market.
The Commission eliminates the International Settlements Policy (ISP) and applies a modified version to Cuba. The Commission amends its rules and procedures to enhance its ability to respond to foreign carriers' anticompetitive behavior in and timely and effective manner. Eliminating the ISP will enable more market-based arrangements between U.S. and foreign carriers on all U.S.-international routes giving U.S. consumers competitive pricing when they make international calls. The Commission also adopts certain limited measures to improve the Commission's ability to protect U.S. consumers from the effects of anticompetitive conduct by foreign carriers.
