confidentiality of the CPN.2 These measures include: (1) operating the SecureLogix in a secure facility,
using passwords to protect the data and limiting access to the information to designated
telecommunications and security personnel who have signed non-disclosure agreements; (2) allowing
telecommunications and security personnel to access restricted CPN data only when investigating
harassing or threatening phone calls and requiring them to document the access as part of the
investigative report; (3) allowing transmission of restricted CPN information from KSC to other law
enforcement agencies only through secure communications; and (4) destroying CPN information after a
reasonable retention period.26

C. Waiver Standard
9. The Commission may waive any of its rules if the petitioner shows "good cause."28s A waiver
may be granted if: (1) the waiver would better serve the public interest than would application of the
rule; and (2) special circumstances warrant a deviation from the general rule.29 Circumstances that would
justify a waiver include "considerations of hardship, equity, or more effective implementation of overall
policy."30 The waiver must have identifiable standards that are predictable, workable, and not
susceptible to discriminatory application.31 Generally, the Commission may grant a waiver of its own
rules if the relief requested would not undermine the policy objectives of the rule in question, and would
otherwise serve the public interest.32
10. We conclude that, subject to certain conditions, NASA's petition meets the standards for
granting a limited waiver of section 64.1601(b) while not undermining the privacy objectives of that rule.
We find here, as the Commission has previously, specific circumstances where the need to ensure public
safety takes precedence over a caller's interest in maintaining the privacy of his or her telephone
