constitute a failure to meet a condition of this authorization and thus grounds for declaring the underlying authorization terminated without
further action on the part of the Commission. Failure to meet a condition of the authorization may also result in monetary sanctions or other
enforcement action by the Commission. The Petition and the Letter may be viewed on the FCC's website through the International Bureau Filing

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 at
the end of 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

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

affiliated route pursuant to the provisions of Section 63.10 of the rules.
(4) 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).
(5) Carriers shall comply with the "No Special Concessions" rule, Section 63.14, 47 C.F.R. § 63.14.

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.
(11) 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.
(12) 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
