Effective November 1, 2011, the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA) is allowing Responsible Parties to validate their Part 68 Telephone Terminal Equipment (TTE) Responsible Party Code (RPC) data for the 2012 calendar year. A discounted rate will be in effect through January 31, 2012.
RPC data is required to be validated on an annual basis. The RPC establishes the connection between the responsible party and the telephone equipment stored in the database, and is used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and U.S. Customs.
Responsible Party Codes that are updated will be noted by a “label” to show that the RPC data have been validated and are accurate. On at least an annual basis, ACTA provides the FCC with reports detailing those responsible parties who have, and have not, validated their data.
See ACTA’s announcement.
