Telecom Order CRTC 2003-177

Ottawa, 6 May 2003

Bell Canada

Reference: Tariff Notice 6737

Certification process for terminal equipment


The Commission received an application by Bell Canada dated 31 March 2003, to implement technical changes to item 4200, Use of Customer-Provided Equipment with the Company's facilities, and to item 4230, Electrical and Acoustical Connection of Customer-Provided Terminal Equipment, of its General Tariff pursuant to a Commission staff letter entitled New terminal attachment program requirements, dated 30 December 2002.


In the December 2002 letter, all incumbent carriers were informed that Industry Canada had modified the certification process for terminal equipment and suppliers would self-certify all terminal equipment, and it requested that carriers file revised tariff pages where existing pages were affected by the changes.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission approves Bell Canada's application. The revisions take effect as of the date of this order.

Secretary General
