  §  1.7009   Enforcement.

   (a) It shall be unlawful for an entity or individual to willfully and
   knowingly, or recklessly, submit information or data as part of the
   Digital Opportunity Data Collection that is materially inaccurate or
   incomplete with respect to the availability or the quality of broadband
   internet access service. Such action may lead to enforcement action
   and/or penalties as set forth in the Communications Act and other
   applicable laws.

   (b) Failure to make the Digital Opportunity Data Collection filing in
   accordance with the Commission's rules and the instructions to the
   Digital Opportunity Data Collection may lead to enforcement action
   pursuant to the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and any other
   applicable law.

   (c) For purposes of this section, “materially inaccurate or incomplete”
   means a submission that contains omissions or incomplete or inaccurate
   information that the Commission finds has a substantial impact on its
   collection and use of the data collected in order to comply with the
   requirements of 47 U.S.C. 641-646.

   (d) Providers must file corrected data when they discover inaccuracy,
   omission, or significant reporting error in the original data that they
   submitted, whether through self-discovery, the crowdsource process, the
   challenge process, the Commission verification process, or otherwise.

   (1) Providers must file corrections within 30 days of their discovery
   of incorrect or incomplete data; and

   (2) The corrected filings must be accompanied by the same types of
   certifications that accompany the original filings.
