International Traffic and Revenue Report

Note: In February 2015, the old 43.61 International Telecommunications Data reporting requirements were replaced by the new 43.62 International Traffic and Revenue reporting requirements. Therefore, the old FCC Encyclopedia page “International Telecommunications Traffic Reports” is redirected here.

About. In 2013, the Commission released a Second Report and Order that significantly streamlined and modernized the Commission’s international traffic, revenue, and circuit reporting requirements. Under the Commission’s revised rules, Section 43.62, which went into effect on February 11, 2015, sets forth annual traffic and revenue reporting requirements, replacing the old section 43.61 telecommunications data reporting requirements.

The reporting requirements apply to any person or entity that (1) holds an authorization from the Commission under section 214 of the Communications Act of 1934 (Communications Act), as amended, 47 U.S.C. § 214, to provide International Telecommunications Service; or (2) is engaged in providing Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service connected to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) between the United States and any foreign point.

To implement these revised requirements, the Commission released a Filing Manual that provides instructions to carriers filing reports under the revised requirements (43.62 Filing Manual). Additionally, the Commission, on October 27, 2014, released a  Revised List of International Points that are part of the global telecommunications market.  Carriers should use the revised list for purposes of reporting their international traffic data under the Commission’s amended Part 43 rules.
