FCC Announces Deadline for Gateway Providers to Implement Robocall Mitigation Programs

As you may recall, earlier this year, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued the Gateway Provider Report and Order, Order on Reconsideration, Order, and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. Aimed at helping stop robocall scams that are internationally initiated, the Report and Order provided a multi-pronged approach to combatting telecom fraud, including more stringent call authentication requirements.

On December 12, 2022, the FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau), in support of minimizing robocalls and mitigating telecom fraud, issued a Public Notice that provided compliance deadlines for requirements that were outlined and defined in the Report and Order. 

Specifically, the FCC Bureau announced that:

Gateway Providers have until January 11, 2023, to submit certifications, including robocall mitigation plans, to the Robocall Mitigation Database pursuant to section 64.6305(d) of the Commission’s rules.


Furthermore, the public notice included a reminder for intermediate providers and voice service providers that starting on April 11, 2023, they will be prohibited from accepting calls directly from a gateway provider if the gateway provider’s filing does not appear in the Robocall Mitigation Database.

To ensure compliance, certifications, mitigation plans, identification information and contact information should be submitted via the Database portal on the FCC’s website. Updated instructions for submitting a certification and accompanying information can be accessed by clicking here
