The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission), in a Public Notice, has proposed to establish an oversight role for the Commission over the private STIR/SHAKEN Governance Authority that has the ability to place providers in noncompliance with the rules.  This follows the completed implementation of the TRACED Act, which provided a framework for providers to improve their caller ID authentication and prevent illegal robocalls.  The Commission anticipates that its oversight role will provide necessary due process to parties that may be rendered noncompliant by the Governance Authority without unnecessarily interfering with the private governance processes.  This oversight role will be similar to its authority in the context of decisions made by the Universal Service Administrative Company.  Comments on this proposal are due 30 days after the Public Notice has been published in the Federal Register, which has yet to occur, and reply comments are due 60 days after the Public Notice has been published in the Federal Register.
