  §  52.32   Allocation of the shared costs of long-term number portability.

   (a) The local number portability administrator, as defined in
   § 52.21(h), of each regional database, as defined in § 52.21(1), shall
   recover the shared costs of long-term number portability attributable
   to that regional database from all telecommunications carriers
   providing telecommunications service in areas that regional database
   serves. Pursuant to its duties under § 52.26, the local number
   portability administrator shall collect sufficient revenues to fund the
   operation of the regional database by:

   (1) Assessing a $100 yearly contribution on each telecommunications
   carrier identified in paragraph (a) introductory text that has no
   intrastate, interstate, or international end-user telecommunications
   revenue derived from providing telecommunications service in the areas
   that regional database serves, and

   (2) Assessing on each of the other telecommunications carriers
   providing telecommunications service in areas that regional database
   serves, a charge that recovers the remaining shared costs of long-term
   number portability attributable to that regional database in proportion
   to the ratio of:

   (i) The sum of the intrastate, interstate, and international end-user
   telecommunications revenues that such telecommunications carrier
   derives from providing telecommunications service in the areas that
   regional database serves, ii) to the sum of the intrastate, interstate,
   and international end-user telecommunications revenues that all
   telecommunications carriers derive from providing telecommunications
   service in the areas that regional database serves.

   (b) All telecommunications carriers providing service in the United
   States shall complete and submit a “Telecommunications Reporting
   Worksheet” (as published by the Commission in the Federal Register),
   which sets forth the information needed to calculate contributions
   referred to in paragraph (a) of this section. The worksheet shall be
   certified to by an officer of the contributor, and subject to
   verification by the Commission or the administrator at the discretion
   of the Commission. The Chief of the Wireline Competition Bureau may
   waive, reduce, modify, or eliminate contributor reporting requirements
   that prove unnecessary and require additional reporting requirements
   that the Bureau deems necessary to the sound and efficient
   administration of long-term number portability.

   (c) Local number portability administrators shall keep all data
   obtained from contributors confidential and shall not disclose such
   data in company-specific form unless directed to do so by the
   Commission. Subject to any restrictions imposed by the Chief of the
   Wireline Competition Bureau, the local number portability
   administrators may share data obtained from carriers with the
   administrators of the universal service support mechanism (See 47 CFR
   54.701 of this chapter), the TRS Fund (See 47 CFR 64.604(c)(4)(iii)(H)
   of this chapter), and the North American Numbering Plan cost recovery
   (See 47 CFR 52.16). The local number portability administrators shall
   keep confidential all data obtained from other administrators. The
   administrators shall use such data, from carriers or administrators,
   only for purposes of administering local number portability. The
   Commission shall have access to all data reported to the Administrator.
   Contributors may make requests for Commission nondisclosure of
   company-specific revenue information under § 0.459 of this chapter by so
   indicating on the Telecommunications Reporting Worksheet at the time
   that the subject data are submitted. The Commission shall make all
   decisions regarding nondisclosure of company-specific information.

   (d) Once a telecommunications carrier has been allocated, pursuant to
   paragraph (a)(1) or (a)(2) of this section, its portion of the shared
   costs of long-term number portability attributable to a regional
   database, the carrier shall treat that portion as a carrier-specific
   cost directly related to providing number portability.
