INTERPRETIVE OR POLICY STATEMENT
Subject: Petition for clarification or waiver of WAC 480-120-450 (2)(e), concerning resolution of E911 data base errors reported by PSAPs to LECs, as adopted on December 16, 2002, in Docket No. UT-990146 and effective July 1, 2003.
Effective Date: June 13, 2003.
Document Description: The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission clarifies that subsection (2)(e) of WAC 480-120-450 requires LECs to resolve reports of data base errors within five working days. That obligation falls on LECs in their role as service providers. That subsection does not impose those obligations on LECs that administer an E911 data base, but that are not the service provider at the location where an error is reported.
