Pursuant to General Order 96-B requiring the reviewing industry to publish and keep current an advice letter status report on the Commission's website, CPED is providing the following information on the status of all open, closed, and suspended AV program advice letters.

The following reports will be updated within 30 days of any new filing, suspension, or extension and any change of status of an advice letter, including disposition or withdrawal of the advice letter.

Note on Advice Letter Suspensions: Advice Letters are commonly suspended for additional review by staff. The suspension deadline is the maximum time allotted and staff may issue a disposition or resolution at any time before the deadline. An Advice Letter suspension does not impact a carrier's existing CPUC authorities to operate.
