to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Notice; request for comments.


SUMMARY: As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burden 
and as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3502-3520), the Federal Communications Commission invites the general 
public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment 
on the following information collection(s). Comments are requested 
concerning: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary 
for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, 
including whether the information shall have practical utility; the 
accuracy of the Commission's burden estimates; ways to enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; ways to 
minimize the burden of the collection of information on the 
respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology; and ways to further reduce the 
information collection burden on small business concerns with fewer 
than 25 employees.
    The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. No person 
shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection 
of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) that does 
not display a valid OMB control number.

DATES: Written Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) comments should be 
submitted on or before December 17, 2012. If you anticipate that you 
will be submitting PRA comments, but find it difficult to do so within 
the period of time allowed by this notice, you should advise the FCC 
contact listed below as soon as possible.

Management and Budget (OMB), via fax at 202-395-5167 or via Internet at

    Estimated Time per Response: 3.3012048 hours.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion and one time reporting 
requirements, recordkeeping requirements and third party disclosure 
    Obligation to Respond: Voluntary. Statutory authority for this 
information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. sections 154(i), 160,

    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Although the Commission does

and the corresponding PSAP response provisions, covered carriers or 
PSAPs are free to request that materials or information submitted to 
the Commission be withheld from public inspection and from the E911 Web 
site. Entities wishing to submit confidential information may do so 
under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission's rules.

    Needs and Uses: The Commission is now submitting this collection to 
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval of an extension 
of this information collection. There is no change to the reporting, 
recordkeeping and/or third party disclosure requirements. The 
Commission's previous burden estimates (2009) have not changed.
    Under the Commission's E911 rules, a wireless carrier must provide 
E911 service to a particular Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) 
within six months only if that PSAP makes a request for the service and 
is capable of receiving and utilizing the information provided. In the 
City of Richardson, TX Order, the Commission's actions were intended to 
facilitate the E911 implementation process by encouraging parties to 
communicate with each other earl in the implementation process, and to 
maintain a constructive, on-going dialog throughout the implementation 
process. See the 60 day notice for more details on the specific 
information collection requirements in this information collection 
which was published in the Federal Register on August 28, 2012 (77 FR
