Certification process for terminal equipment


The Commission received an application by Saskatchewan Telecommunications (SaskTel), dated 12 March 2003 and amended on 31 March 2003, pursuant to a Commission staff letter entitled New terminal attachment program requirements, dated 30 December 2002, to implement technical changes to the following items:

- General Tariff - Basic Services item 56, Customer's Obligations and Responsibilities;

- General Tariff - Basic Services item 92, Attachment of Customer-Provided Equipment;

- Competitor Access Tariff item 600.1, Terms and Conditions for IXCs;

- Competitor Access Tariff item 610.18, Local Network Interconnection and Component Unbundling;

- Competitor Access Tariff item 610.26, Interconnection Arrangements for DSL Service Providers;

- Competitor Access Tariff item 650.06, Pay Telephone Basic Access Line Service; and

- Competitor Access Tariff item 650.18, Radio Paging Access Service.


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 the carriers to 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 SaskTel's application. The revisions take effect as of the date of this order.
