Dear Mr. Bibic:

Regulatory compliance by Bell Canada with respect to Centrex stand-alone contracted services

This letter concerns the regulatory compliance process initiated by the Commission with respect to Bell Canada following the issuance of Measures with respect to incumbent telephone company regulatory compliance, Telecom Public Notice CRTC 2003-4,          10 April 2003 (Telecom Public Notice 2003-4).  

This process pertained to the provision of Centrex stand-alone contracted services (contracted Centrex) by Bell Canada and included an on-site inspection on a sample basis by Welch Fund Administration Services Inc. ( Welch ), pursuant to section 71 of the Telecommunications Act , with respect to Centrex customers with 101 lines or more for contracted Centrex provided in Ontario during August 2003.     

Welch's report shows that Bell Canada was in substantial compliance with its regulatory obligations with respect to contracted Centrex and that there was no pattern of non-compliance reflective of an anti-competitive purpose or effect.       

We note the company's comments with respect to Welch's report as well as the changes made to Bell Canada 's systems and procedures following the issuance of Telecom Public Notice 2003-4.    

A copy of this letter will be posted on the Commission's website.

Yours sincerely,


Scott Hutton
Director General,
Competition, Costing and Tariffs
