Local telecommunications traffic signaling information required to be provided
by originating carrier to terminating carrier to assess charges.
If necessary for the assessment of
transport and termination charges pursuant to 47 U.S.C. § 251(b)(5) as of January 1, 2004, an
originating carrier of local telecommunications traffic shall, in delivering its traffic, transmit
signaling information in accordance with commonly accepted industry standards giving the
terminating carrier information that is sufficient to identify, measure, and appropriately charge the
originating carrier for services provided in terminating the local telecommunications traffic. If the
originating carrier is delivering both local and nonlocal telecommunications traffic, the originating
carrier shall separately provide the terminating carrier with accurate and verifiable information,
including percentage measurements that enables the terminating carrier to appropriately classify
telecommunications traffic as being either local or nonlocal, and interstate or intrastate, and to assess
the appropriate applicable transport and termination or access charges. If accurate and verifiable
information allowing appropriate classification of the terminated traffic is not provided by the
originating carrier, the terminating carrier may classify all unidentified traffic terminated for the
originating carrier as nonlocal telecommunications traffic for service billing purposes.
