                                      Released:  February 2, 2006

  Enforcement Bureau Opens New Docket for the February 6, 2006, 
                         Filing of CPNI 
                    Compliance Certifications
                      (EB Docket No. 06-36)

     In this Public Notice, the Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) opens 
a new docket for telecommunications carriers to file their 
certifications demonstrating compliance with the Federal 
Communications Commission's (Commission) rules for protecting the 
privacy of customer proprietary network information (``CPNI'') as 
directed in a Public Notice released on January 30, 2006, DA 06-
223.  Members of the public are understandably concerned about 
the safeguards employed by the companies handling their private 
information and contacted the Bureau seeking information about 
the CPNI compliance certifications.  Opening a new docket will 
enable the public to more easily access these carrier 
     Carrier compliance certificates for the most recent period, 
along with the accompanying statement explaining how their 
respective operating procedures ensure compliance with section 
64.2009(e) of the Commission's rules, must be filed no later than 
Monday, February 6, 2006, in accordance with the procedures 
outlined below.  Any CPNI compliance certifications already filed 
electronically with the Commission will be moved to the new 
docket by Commission staff.  Carriers do not need to re-file 
their certifications.
