  §  61.171   Adoption notice.

   When a carrier's name is changed, or its operating control transferred
   from one carrier to another in whole or in part, the successor carrier
   must file tariff revisions to reflect the name change. The successor
   carrier may either immediately reissue the entire tariff in its own
   name, or immediately file an adoption notice. Within 35 days of filing
   an adoption notice, the successor must reissue the entire tariff in its
   own name. The reissued tariff must be numbered in the series of the
   successor carrier, and must contain all original pages without changes
   in regulations or rates. The transmittal letter must state the tariff
   is being filed to show a change in the carrier's name pursuant to
   § 61.171 of the Commission's Rules. The adoption notice, if used, must
   read as follows:

   The (Exact name of successor carrier or receiver) here adopts, ratifies
   and makes its own in every respect, all applicable tariffs and
   amendments filed with the Federal Communications Commission by
   (predecessor) prior to (date).
