  § 64.1902   Terms and definitions.

   Terms used in this part have the following meanings:

   Books of account. Books of account refer to the financial accounting
   system a company uses to record, in monetary terms, the basic
   transactions of a company. These books of account reflect the company's
   assets, liabilities, and equity, and the revenues and expenses from
   operations. Each company has its own separate books of account.

   Incumbent Independent Local Exchange Carrier (Incumbent Independent
   LEC). The term incumbent independent local exchange carrier means, with
   respect to an area, the independent local exchange carrier that:

   (1) On February 8, 1996, provided telephone exchange service in such
   area; and

   (2)(i) On February 8, 1996, was deemed to be a member of the exchange
   carrier association pursuant to § 69.601(b) of this title; or

   (ii) Is a person or entity that, on or after February 8, 1996, became a
   successor or assign of a member described in paragraph (2)(i) of this
   section. The Commission may also, by rule, treat an independent local
   exchange carrier as an incumbent independent local exchange carrier
   pursuant to section 251(h)(2) of the Communications Act of 1934, as

   Independent Local Exchange Carrier (Independent LEC). Independent local
   exchange carriers are local exchange carriers, including GTE, other
   than the BOCs.

   Independent Local Exchange Carrier Affiliate (Independent LEC
   Affiliate). An independent local exchange carrier affiliate is a
   carrier that is owned (in whole or in part) or controlled by, or under
   common ownership (in whole or in part) or control with, an independent
   local exchange carrier.

   In-region service. In-region service means telecommunications service
   originating in an independent local exchange carrier's local service
   areas or 800 service, private line service, or their equivalents that:

   (1) Terminate in the independent LEC's local exchange areas; and

   (2) Allow the called party to determine the interexchange carrier, even
   if the service originates outside the independent LEC's local exchange

   Local Exchange Carrier. The term local exchange carrier means any
   person that is engaged in the provision of telephone exchange service
   or exchange access. Such term does not include a person insofar as such
   person is engaged in the provision of a commercial mobile service under
   section 332(c), except to the extent that the Commission finds that
   such service should be included in the definition of that term.
