Companies operating in the telecommunications industry, whether licensed before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), at the state level (via Public Utility and Public Service Commissions), or both, have a multitude of regulatory compliance obligations arising at various intervals throughout each year.

  • Telecommunications service providers currently face as many as 600 regulatory reporting deadlines and over 400 distinct reports, certifications and filings.
  • Providers of VoIP and Wireless telecommunications services are confronted with regulatory compliance reporting and fee remittance obligations at the FCC, USAC (the Universal Service Fund administrator), and nearly half of the state PUCs.

Failure to submit the required reports and pay fees & contributions to an alphabet soup of funds and government programs can lead to serious consequences, including fines, penalties, and in extreme cases, revocation of operating authority.  Non-compliance also diminishes the true value of your company and frequently becomes a sticking point in merger or acquisition negotiations.
