FCC Begins "Enforcement Advisory" Initiative
Last week, the FCC began a new effort to educate businesses regarding the requirements of the FCC's rules with the release of its first "Enforcement Advisories". Regarding the new initiative, Enforcement Bureau Chief, P. Michele Ellison, issued a statement that "[w]hile most companies and individuals take their regulatory obligations seriously, some appear unaware of what the Commission's rules require or choose not to comply. The Enforcement Bureau will continue to work proactively to bring these entities into compliance." The FCC's first two Enforcement Advisories deal with protecting customer proprietary network information (Link) and with ensuring that individuals with hearing disabilities can fully utilize wireless phone services (Link). Additional Enforcement Advisories are expected periodically.
