ECF Compliance Reminder Issued by FCC

On March 1, 2023, the Federal Communications Commission issued a Public Notice reminding Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) applicants “about their ongoing obligations to comply with the Program rules, including the document retention and production requirements.” In the Public Notice, the FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau reminds applicants of their requirement to maintain service and equipment inventories for all products and services purchased with ECF support. The Public Notice also reminds applicants that they must maintain documentation “supporting their compliance with ECF Program rules and certifications, including how they determined their unmet need.” Compliance documents in the ECF program must be retained by applicants for ten years from the last date of service or delivery of equipment.
