The Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) adopted an Order on April 20, 2023 imposing a one-time ownership-related data request to which all holders of international Section 214 authority must respond.  The due date for affected carriers to respond is not yet known and will be established after review and approval of the FCC’s Order by the Office of Management and Budget. Noncompliance will subject International 214 Holders to potential monetary and other penalties up to and including license revocation.
