NASNA Asks FCC for Next Generation 911 Rulemaking


The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) has published a public notice seeking comment on a National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA) petition for a notice of inquiry or rulemaking.  NASNA’s petition asks that the FCC establish its authority over originating service providers’ (OSP) delivery of 911 services through IP-based emergency services networks; amend its rules to advance the transition to and implementation of NG911 services and require OSPs to bear the cost of compliance; and that the FCC consider adding a NG911 Readiness Registry to its existing text-to-911 or Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) registries. Comments and Replies are due January 19, 2022 and February 3, 2022, respectively.
