  §  61.20   Method of filing publications.

   (a) Publications sent for filing must be addressed to "Secretary,
   Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC 20554." The date on
   which the publication is received by the Secretary of the Commission
   (or the Mail Room where submitted by mail) is considered the official
   filing date.

   (b)(1) In addition, except for issuing carriers filing tariffing fees
   electronically, for all tariff publications requiring fees as set forth
   in part 1, subpart G of this chapter, issuing carriers must submit the
   original of the cover letter (without attachments), FCC Form 159, and
   the appropriate fee to the U.S. Bank, St. Louis, Missouri at the
   address set forth in § 1.1105 of this chapter. Issuing carriers
   submitting tariffing fees electronically should submit the Form 159 and
   the original cover letter to the Secretary of the Commission in lieu of
   the U.S. Bank. The Form 159 should display the Electronic Audit Code in
   the box in the upper left hand corner marked "reserved." Issuing
   carriers should submit these fee materials on the same date as the
   submission in paragraph (a) of this section.

   (2) International carriers must certify in their original cover letter
   that they are authorized under Section 214 of the Communications Act of
   1934, as amended, to provide service, and reference the FCC file number
   of that authorization.

   (c) In addition to the requirements set forth in paragraphs (a) and (b)
   of this section, the issuing carrier must send a copy of the cover
   letter with one 31/2inch diskette or CD-ROM containing both the
   complete tariff and any attachments, as appropriate, to the Secretary,
   Federal Communications Commission. In addition, the issuing carrier
   must send one diskette or CD-ROM of the complete tariff and a copy of
   the cover letter to the commercial contractor (at its office on
   Commission premises), and to the Chief, Tariff and Pricing Analysis
   Branch. The latter should be clearly labeled as the "Public Reference
   Copy." The issuing carrier should file the copies required by this
   paragraph so they will be received on the same date as the filings in
   paragraph (a) of this section. In cases where the a single diskette or
   CD-ROM does not provide sufficient capacity for the carrier's entire
   tariff filing, the issuing carrier may submit two or more diskettes, or
   two or more CD-ROMs, as necessary.
