By the Acting Chief, Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau:
1. In this Order, we grant a petition filed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration
(NASA), John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC),' requesting a limited waiver of section 64.1601(b) of the
Commission's rules, which prohibits terminating carriers from passing the calling party number (CPN)2
to the called party where a privacy request has been made by the caller. Specifically, we conclude that
granting this request, under the conditions specified herein, will serve the public interest by allowing
security and law enforcement personnel to rapidly respond to threatening telephone calls made to the
KSC, thereby protecting national security interests without undermining the policy objectives of the
Commission's CPN rules.
A. The CPN Rules
2. In 1994, the Commission adopted rules that require common carriers using Signaling System
7 (SS7) to transmit the CPN on interstate calls to interconnecting carriers.3 The Commission concluded
See Petition of National Aeronautics and Space Administration for Waiver of Federal Communications
Commission Regulations at 47 C.F.R. 64.1601(b), filed Oct. 25, 2006 in CC Docket No. 91-281 (NASA-KSC
Petition). We note that NASA limits its waiver request to the KSC facility. Therefore, the waiver granted herein
applies only to that facility and not the entire agency.
2 The Commission's rules define CPN as "the subscriber line number or the directory number contained in the
calling party number parameter of the call set-up message associated with an interstate call on a Signaling System 7
network." 47 C.F.R. 64.1600(e). Associated with the CPN is a Privacy Indicator "that indicates whether the
calling party authorizes presentation of the calling party number to the called party." 47 C.F.R. 64.1600(j).
