Memo: Recertifying Study Area Boundary Data

May 22, 2023

On May 16, 2023, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released DA 23-416, a Public Notice announcing that the biennial recertifications of Study Area Boundary (SAB) data are due no later than June 30, 2023.

According to the FCC’s Study Area Boundary Order, incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) and state commissions that have voluntarily agreed to file study area boundary data on behalf of some or all ILECs operating within their jurisdictions (certifying state commissions) must review and recertify SAB data every two years. ILECs without certifying state commissions will need to complete this process themselves.
