FCC Reminders RE STIR/SHAKEN and Robocall Mitigation Database

Jun 28, 2021 National Law Review

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has issued a Public Notice reminder to certain voice service providers regarding their obligations to implement STIR/SHAKEN and the robocall mitigation database filing deadline.

Specifically, the agency’s June 21, 2021 Public Notice “reminds voice service providers and intermediate service providers not subject to an extension that they must implement the STIR/SHAKEN caller ID authentication framework in their Internet Protocol networks no later than June 30, 2021. We also remind voice service providers that they must file certifications in the Robocall Mitigation Database no later than June 30, 2021.”

The FCC Public Notice also warns “those voice service providers and intermediate providers without an extension of, or exemption from, the STIR/SHAKEN implementation deadline that fail to implement the authentication framework by June 30, 2021, and those voice service providers that fail to file the required certification and accompanying information in the Robocall Mitigation Database by this date may be subject to appropriate enforcement action.”  Further, “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.”
