Technical & Administrative Papers
As provided for in the FCC Order [Report
and Order in the 2000 Biennial Review of Part 68 of the
Commission's Rules and Regulations, CC Docket No. 99-216,
FCC 00-400, adopted November 9, 2000 and released December
21, 2000 ("Order" or "R&O")], any American National
Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited Standards Development
Organization (SDO), observing ANSI consensus decision-making
procedures, may establish technical criteria and submit
such criteria to the ACTA for adoption.
Inquires in regards to the technical content
of any adopted specification, or interpretation thereof,
should be sent to the organization (SDO) that submitted
the specification. For information on contacting the appropriate
SDO, refer to the technical specification. A website of
Asked Part 68 Questions is maintained by TIA under Committee
Technical inquiries may also be directed to
a Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB). The TCB program
was designed with the objective to facilitate market access
and competition in the provision of telecommunications products
that require testing and/or approval. TCBs satisfying specific
qualification criteria, as specified by the FCC and approved
by the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), may certify
equipment. Questions regarding the TCB program can be directed
to the TCB Council.
Questions regarding a TCB's test methodologies,
procedures, or application, should be directed to that TCB.
A complete list of ANSI-accredited
TCBs for TTE is maintained by ANSI. The European Community
(EC) maintains a list of Conformity
Assessment Bodies (CABs) recognized as TCBs under the
Agreement between the US and E.C.
Administrative questions pertaining to the
ACTA, or inquiries about submitting terminal equipment information
to ACTA for inclusion in the database, should be sent to
the ACTA Secretariat.
A website of Frequently Asked Questions
is maintained by the ACTA Secretariat.
