Adopted: November 30, 1999 Released: November 30, 1999
By the Deputy Chief, Common Carrier Bureau:
1. This order responds to the September 13, 1999, Petition of the Ohio Public
Utilities Commission (Ohio Commission) for Delegation of Additional Authority to Implement
Number Conservation Measures (Petition). We herein conditionally grant the Ohio Commission
the authority to set NXX code allocation standards; reclaim unused and reserved NXX codes,
and thousand-number blocks within those codes; investigate and order the return of reserved and
protected NXX codes; require sequential number assignment; and institute thousands-block
pooling trials. At this time, we decline to reach the Ohio Commission's request to adopt number
rationing plans prior to reaching area code relief decisions, its request for authority to implement
service-specific and technology-specific NPA overlays, and the authority to require carriers to
assign numbers from an NXX code to end users within six months of receiving the code.
2. Many of the measures proposed in the Petition are also examined in a Notice of
Proposed Rulemaking that the Commission released earlier this year.' Although we grant the
Ohio Commission interim authority to institute many of the optimization measures in the
Petition, we do so subject to the caveat that this grant will be superseded by forthcoming
decisions in the Numbering Resource Optimization proceeding that will establish national
guidelines, standards, and procedures for numbering optimization. This limited grant of
delegated authority should not be construed as a prejudgment of any of the measures on which
the Commission has sought public comment in the Numbering Resource Optimization Notice.
See Numbering Resource Optimization, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, CC Docket No. 99-200, FCC 99122
(rel. June 2, 1999) (Numbering Resource Optimization Notice).
