This sub-committee is a standards formulating group that initiates proposals and monitors regulations and related matters for wireline telecommunications terminal equipment in North America.

The primary work of this subcommittee includes:

  • development, maintenance and interpretation of technical requirements to prevent network harm (e.g. 47CFR Part 68, TIA-968)
  • development and maintenance of related administrative requirements, guidelines and procedures
  • development and maintenance of test methods and guidelines
  • submission of technical and administrative documents to the ACTA for adoption
  • advising and responding to others (e.g. FCC, ACTA, Industry Canada, committees or individuals) on regulatory issues in the telecommunications terminal equipment environment

The group will also consider such other regulatory matters it deems appropriate.
