The FCC greatly revised this collection, deciding not to use a number of reporting requirements similar to those imposed by the Commission under the Computer III settlement. OMB supports the Commission in adopting the referral requirements contained in CC Docket 96-152 / FCC Docket 97-35. OMB recommends that the FCC consider issuing guidance on how publishers can request BOCs to include them in the BOC referral service and what constitutes nondiscriminatory terms.

The Commission imposes this third-party disclosure requirement on the BOCs in order to implement the nondiscrimination requirement of section 274(c)(2)(A) of the Communications Act, as amended. The Commission requires that, to the extent a BOC refers a customer to a separated affiliate, electronic publishing joint venture of affiliate during the normal course of its telemarketing operations, it must refer that customer to all unaffiliated electronic publishers requesting the referral service. In particular, the BOC must provide the customer the names of all unaffiliated electronic publishers.
