As we reported last month, the Commission has adopted a new set of E911 standards designed to improve E911 location capability. The FCC’s Fourth Report and Order setting forth those standards has now been published in the Federal Register. As a result, the new rules are set to take effect on April 3, 2015 … except for Sections 20.18(i)(2)(ii)(A) and (B); 20.18(i)(2)(iii); 20.18(i)(3)(i) and (ii); 20.18(i)(4)(i), (ii), (iii) and (iv); and 20.18(j)(2) and (3). Those all constitute “information collections” which, thanks to the hilariously named Paperwork Reduction Act, have to get the approval of the Office of Management and Budget before they can kick into gear. Check back here for updates as to those loose ends.
