A couple of weeks ago we reported that all but one of the new rules embracing Long Term Evolution (LTE) as the broadband technology for public safety networks had taken effect. The one lingering loose end was Section 90.1407(f), which requires public safety broadband network operators to submit a certification of compliance prior to deployment of any Radio Access Equipment. The hold-up? That section included an “information collection” and, therefore, needed to be run past the Office of Management and Budget for approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act. But now the FCC can cross that off its to-do list: in a notice published in the Federal Register, the FCC reports that OMB has signed off on the certification requirement, and that requirement has taken effect as of September 6, 2011.
