In the CICs Order on Reconsideration,
the Commission requires local exchange carriers (LECs) to offer a
standard intercept message on or before June 30, 1998, and to
coordinate with interexchange carriers (IXCs) in developing it.
This requirement is needed to educate end users about their need to
use seven-digit carrier access codes (CACs) to reach carriers
instead of the previous five-digit access codes.
