On March 23, 2021, the FCC released a Public Notice seeking comment on the General Services Administration’s (GSA) petition for waiver of certain user registration requirements for Internet Protocol Relay Service (IP Relay) and Internet Protocol Captioned Telephone Service (IP CTS).  GSA requests a waiver of the registration requirements for federal government users to relieve the burden associated with the collection of personally identifiable information for federal government users.  Instead, GSA proposes to use a registration procedure comparable to the Commission’s “enterprise registration” procedure for video relay service (VRS).
