In MTS Allstream and Bell Canada - Part VII applications regarding 900 service, Telecom Decision CRTC 2006-48, 3 August 2006 (Decision 2006-48), the Commission requested that the CRTC Interconnection Steering Committee Business Process Working Group (BPWG) modify the Billing and Collection Services Agreement (the BCS Agreement) to restrict its application, with regard to billing of 900 calls, to only those 900 calls that are in compliance with the current Accounts Receivable Management Agreement (the ARM Agreement) content guidelines.


On 12 October 2006, the BPWG submitted a consensus report entitled Billing and Collection for 900 Services, 10 October 2006 (BPRE063a and BCARGV1.5), for Commission approval. The report and the BCS Agreement are available on the Commission website.


The Commission notes that the revised BCS Agreement restricts the billing and collection for 900 services to only those 900 calls that are in compliance with the current ARM Agreement, as per the Commission directives in Decision 2006-48.


Accordingly, the Commission approves the above-noted consensus report.
