FCC Adopts Supply Chain Order


The Federal Communications Commission has adopted a Third Report and Order to implement the supply chain Reimbursement Program, which reimburses advanced communications service providers for replacing and disposing communications equipment posing a national security risk.  The Third Report and Order provides that all communications equipment and services provided or produced by Huawei or ZTE is eligible for reimbursement, establishes June 30, 2020 as the cutoff date by which reimbursable equipment and services must have been acquired, enacts the Consolidated Appropriations Act’s prioritization scheme, and clarifies Reimbursement Program requirements.
