“This page is a digitally archived AccessInfo Announcement”

The FCC released a Public Notice to remind service providers and equipment manufacturers to maintain records, beginning January 30, 2013, of their efforts to implement their accessibility obligations related to telecommunications, advanced communications, and Internet browsers built into mobile phones (under Sections

255, 716, and 718 of the Communications Act).


The FCC also announced the establishment of the “Recordkeeping Compliance Certification and Contact Information Registry.”  Service providers and equipment manufacturers must use this web-based system to submit their first annual recordkeeping compliance certifications and required contact information by April 1,



To submit a recordkeeping certification or to enter or update contact information, go to https://apps.fcc.gov/rccci-registry/.  Follow the instructions provided on the website for submitting the certification and contact information.


At a later date, the FCC will make this contact information available on its website to assist consumers in reporting accessibility and usability concerns to service providers and equipment manufacturers.
