The Federal Communications Commission submits this non-substantive change request to require electronic filing of certain required submissions using a Communications Assistance to Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) Electronic Filing System (CEFS). The CALEA information collection is currently approved under OMB control No. 3060-0809. This non-substantive change from paper filing to electronic filing also requires approval for non-substantive changes to three other general Commission information collections OMB control Nos. 3060-0917, 3060-0918, and 3060-0862 (see justification). The Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) requires (a) telecommunications carriers to protect against unlawful interception of communications of their facilities by establishing policies and procedures to ensure security and integrity of those facilities and to maintain records of all interceptions of unlawful electronic surveillance, and (b) the FCC to prescribe CALEA implementing rules and to review the carriers' filings under Section 301(b) and to order any deficiencies to be corrected. Information collections include mandatory system security filings, and voluntary extension of time and cost reimbursement petitions.
