CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO INTERNATIONAL SECTION 214 AUTHORIZATIONS
(1) These authorizations are subject to the Exclusion List for International Section 214 Authorizations, which identifies
restrictions on providing service to particular countries or using particular facilities. The most recent Exclusion List is
attached to this Public Notice. The list applies to all U.S. international carriers, including those that have previously
received global or limited global Section 214 authority, whether by Public Notice or specific written order. Carriers are
advised that the attached Exclusion List is subject to amendment at any time pursuant to the procedures set forth in
Streamlining the International Section 214 Authorization Process and Tariff Requirements, IB Docket No. 95-118, 11
FCC Rcd 12884 (1996), para. 18. A copy of the current Exclusion List will be maintained in the FCC Reference and
Information Center and will be available at http://www.fcc.gov/ib/pd/pf/telecomrules.html#exclusionlist. It also will be
attached to each Public Notice that grants international Section 214 authority.
(2) The export of telecommunications services and related payments to countries that are subject to economic sanctions
may be restricted. For information concerning current restrictions, call the Office of Foreign Assets Control, U.S.
Department of the Treasury, (202) 622-2520.
(3) Carriers shall comply with the requirements of Section 63.11 of the Commission's rules, which requires notification
by, and in certain circumstances prior notification by, U.S. carriers acquiring an affiliation with foreign carriers. A carrier
that acquires an affiliation with a foreign carrier will be subject to possible reclassification as a dominant carrier on an
affiliated route pursuant to the provisions of Section 63.10 of the rules.
(4) Carriers shall comply with the Commission's International Settlements Policy and associated filing requirements
contained in Sections 43.51, 64.1001 and 64.1002 of the Commission's Rules, 47 C.F.R. 43.51, 64.1001, 64.1002.
The Commission modified these requirements most recently in International Settlements Policy Reform: International
Settlement Rates, First Report and Order, FCC 04-53, 19 FCC Rcd 5709 (2004). In addition, any carrier interconnecting
private lines to the U.S. public switched network at its switch, including any switch in which the carrier obtains capacity
either through lease or otherwise, shall file annually with the Chief, International Bureau, a certified statement
containing, on a country-specific basis, the number and type (e.g., 64 kbps circuits) of private lines interconnected in
such manner. The Commission will treat the country of origin information as confidential. Carriers need not file their
contracts for interconnection unless the Commission specifically requests. Carriers shall file their annual report on
February 1 (covering international private lines interconnected during the preceding January 1 to December 31 period) of
each year. International private lines to countries which the Commission has exempted from the International Settlements
Policy at any time during a particular reporting period are exempt from this requirement. See 47 C.F.R. 43.51(d). The
Commission's list of U.S. international routes that are exempt from the International Settlements Policy may be viewed at
http://www.fcc.gov/ib/pd/pf/isp_exempt.html.
(5) Carriers authorized to provide private line service either on a facilities or resale basis are limited to the provision of
such private line service only between the United States and those foreign points covered by their referenced applications
for Section 214 authority. A carrier may provide switched services over its authorized resold private lines in the
circumstances specified in Section 63.23(d) of the rules, 47 C.F. R. 63.23(d).
(6) A carrier may engage in "switched hubbing" to countries that do not appear on the Commission's list of U.S.
international routes that are exempt from the International Settlements Policy, set forth in Section 64.1002, 47 C.F.R.
64.1002, provided the carrier complies with the requirements of Section 63.17(b) of the rules, 47 C.F.R. 63.17(b). The
Commission's list of U.S. international routes that are exempt from the International Settlements Policy may be viewed at
http://www.fcc.gov/ib/pd/pf/isp_exempt.html.
(7) Carriers shall comply with the "No Special Concessions" rule, Section 63.14, 47 C.F.R. 63.14.
(8) Carriers regulated as dominant for the provision of a particular communications service on a particular route for any
reason other than a foreign carrier affiliation under Section 63.10 of the rules shall file tariffs pursuant to Section 203 of
the Communications Act, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 203, and Part 61 of the Commission's Rules, 47 C.F.R. Part 61.
Carriers shall not otherwise file tariffs except as permitted by Section 61.19 of the rules, 47 C.F.R. 61.19. Except as
specified in Section 20.15 with respect to commercial mobile radio service providers, carriers regulated as
non-dominant, as defined in Section 61.3, and providing detariffed international services pursuant to Section 61.19, must
comply with all applicable public disclosure and maintenance of information requirements in Sections 42.10 and 42.11.
(9) Carriers shall file the annual reports of overseas telecommunications traffic required by Section 43.61(a). Carriers
shall also file the quarterly reports required by Section 43.61 in the circumstances specified in paragraphs (b) and (c) of
that Section.
Page 7 of 8

(10) Carriers shall file annual reports of circuit status and/or circuit additions in accordance with the requirements set
forth in Rules for Filing of International Circuit Status Reports, CC Docket No. 93-157, Report and Order, 10 FCC Rcd
8605 (1995). See 47 C.F.R. 43.82. See also 63.22(e), 63.23(e). These requirements apply to facilities-based
carriers and private line resellers, respectively. See also http:www.fcc.gov/ib/pd/pf/csmanual.html.
(11) Carriers should consult Section 63.19 of the rules when contemplating a discontinuance, reduction or impairment of
service. Further, the grant of these applications shall not be construed to include authorization for the transmission of
money in connection with the services the applicants have been given authority to provide. The transmission of money is
not considered to be a common carrier service.
(12) If any carrier is reselling service obtained pursuant to a contract with another carrier, the services obtained by
contract shall be made generally available by the underlying carrier to similarly situated customers at the same terms,
conditions and rates. 47 U.S.C. 203.
(13) To the extent the applicant is, or is affiliated with, an incumbent independent local exchange carrier, as those terms
are defined in Section 64.1902 of the rules, it shall provide the authorized services in compliance with the requirements
of Section 64.1903.
(14) Except as otherwise ordered by the Commission, a carrier authorized here to provide facilities-based service that (i)
is classified as dominant under Section 63.10 of the rules for the provision of such service on a particular route and (ii) is
affiliated with a carrier that collects settlement payments for terminating U.S. international switched traffic at the foreign
end of that route may not provide facilities-based switched service on that route unless the current rates the affiliate
charges U.S. international carriers to terminate traffic are at or below the Commission's relevant benchmark adopted in
International Settlement Rates, IB Docket No. 96-261, Report and Order, 12 FCC Rcd 19806 (1997). See also Report
and Order on Reconsideration and Order Lifting Stay in IB Docket No. 96-261, FCC 99-124 (rel. June 11, 1999). For
the purposes of this rule, "affiliated" and "foreign carrier" are defined in Section 63.09.
Exclusion List for International Section 214 Authorizations
The following is a list of countries and facilities not covered by grant of global Section 214 authority under Section
63.18(e)(1) of the Commission's Rules, 47 C.F.R. 63.18(e)(1). In addition, the facilities listed shall not be used by
