                                      Released:  January 30, 2006

  Enforcement Bureau Directs All Telecommunications Carriers to 
                           Submit CPNI
                    Compliance Certifications

     In this Public Notice, the Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) 
directs all telecommunications carriers, including wireline and 
wireless carriers, to submit a compliance certificate to the 
Commission as required by section 64.2009(e) of the Commission's 
rules.1  Carrier certificates for the most recent period, along 
with the accompanying statement explaining how their respective 
operating procedures ensure compliance with the rules, must be 
filed no later than Monday, February 6, 2006, in accordance with 
the procedures outlined below.  
     Section 222 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended 
(the ``Act''),2 requires that telecommunications carriers protect 
the privacy of customer proprietary network information 
(``CPNI'').  The Commission has initiated several inquiries into 
the procedures used by telecommunications carriers to ensure 
confidentiality of CPNI based on concerns regarding the apparent 
sale of telephone call records over the Internet.   I``''``''34n 
furtherance of our investigations into this matter, the 
Commission directed several telecommunications carriers to submit 
compliance certificates they are obligated to prepare and 
maintain in accordance with section 64.2009(e) of the 
Commission's rules.56  After reviewing the submissions filed by 
these carriers, we find further investigation and review of all 
telecommunications carriers' most recent annual CPNI 
certifications is required.
