Bureau Reminds Carriers of 911 Deadlines

The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau issued a public notice today reminding wireless carriers to file “their certifications of compliance with the three-year E911 location accuracy benchmark as required by Section 20.18(i)(2)(iii) of the Commission’s rules.

The three-year benchmark requires CMRS providers to provide, as of April 3, 2018, dispatchable location or x/y location (latitude and longitude) within 50 meters for 50 percent of all wireless 911 calls. CMRS providers must certify compliance with this benchmark no later than June 4, 2018. We also remind CMRS providers of additional E911 location accuracy deadlines in 2018.”
