Telecom Order CRTC 2004-421

PIC/CARE access customer handbook


The Commission received an application by Maskatel inc. (Maskatel), dated 19 August 1999, for approval of its Primary Interexchange Carrier/Customer Account Record Exchange Access Customer Handbook (PIC/CARE handbook). On 1 November 2004, Maskatel filed a revised version (Version 3.0) of its PIC/CARE handbook with the Commission.


Maskatel's PIC/CARE handbook provides interexchange carriers (IXCs) with guidelines on exchanging information between an IXC and an incumbent company.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


In July 2000, the CRTC Interconnection Steering Committee (CISC) Business Process Working Group developed a model PIC/CARE handbook (CISC model) for use by the telecommunications industry. The CISC model was last updated in July 2003.


The Commission finds that the revised PIC/CARE handbook filed by Maskatel is based on the latest version of the CISC model. It provides the necessary information with respect to PIC processing and is consistent with PIC/CARE handbooks recently approved for other telephone companies.


Accordingly, the Commission approves Version 3.0 of Maskatel's PIC/CARE handbook.
