The FCC should include any filing fees required by this collection as cost burdens. OMB strongly supports electronic filing by industry and assumes that all filings required by this rulemaking can and will be made electronically. Commenters also support electronic filing of tariffs and supporting materials but suggest that the FCC work with industry on addressing format, security, standards, and historical filing archiving capabilities related to electronic submissions prior to requiring its use. Commenters also support FCC maintenance of this system. OMB concurs with these comments. The FCC should adopt a plan for implementing electronic filing based on industry input before requiring electronic filing and should work to achieve a solution acceptable to a majority of the potential filers.
