Dear EC Members,

I would like to announce the start of an EC motion on comments to the FCC NPRM on Section 7 (GN 18-22, FCC 18-18).  The FCC filing deadline is 21 May 2018 so there is only 8 days to finish the ballot to meet this.

All, please respond before 19 May if possible, so we can meet the FCC deadline.

More on what the NPRM is about:
In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), the Commission proposes guidelines and procedures to implement section 7 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. 47 U.S.C. § 157 (Communications Act § 7).  By this action, the Commission aims to ensure that new technologies and services that serve the public interest can develop and be made available to the public on a timely basis

This EC motion is per 802 OM 7.2 Procedure for communication with government bodies.
