This is a 3rd
Party Disclosure Requirement placed on long distance
telecommunications service providers to prevent the practice known
as "slamming." Companies are required to take certain steps to
ensure that their potential customers are not misled into changing
their long distance carrier. As such, no OMB number is required to
appear on documentation companies use to allow subscribers to
select their Primary Interexchange Carrier (PIC).
Inventory as of this Action
Interexchange carriers (IXCs) are
required to provide consumers with letters of agency (LOAs) that
are physically separate or severable from any inducements or
promotional materials. The LOA must be written in clear and
unambiguous language and printed in a font whose size and style are
comparable to the inducement.
