FCC Bureau Makes Tentative Findings for CVAA Report to Congress


The FCC’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (Bureau) has released a Public Notice seeking comment on tentative findings for its statutorily-mandated 2016 Biennial Report to Congress on the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA). The CVAA requires the Commission to take steps to ensure that people with disabilities have access to emerging communications technologies. The CVAA also requires the Commission to submit a report to Congress every two years regarding compliance with the CVAA’s communications accessibility obligations and the extent to which accessibility barriers to new communications technologies still exist. The Bureau will submit its final report to Congress by October 8, 2016. The Public Notice and tentative findings are available here. Interested parties must submit comments on the tentative findings by September 7, 2016.
