Informational Notices - Upcoming PAS maintenance

The FCC has approved our request for two hours of scheduled downtime, which will occur on Wednesday, October 30th from 9:00 PM ET to 11:00 PM ET to implement PA Change Order A as a result of INC Issue 839. We do not anticipate any interruption of access to PAS during this maintenance.

 

INC Issue 839 “Combine the Central Office Code (NXX) Assignment Guidelines (COCAG) and the Thousands-Block (NXX-X) Administration Guidelines (TBPAG) into one document“ results in the retirement of ATIS-0300051, Central Office Code (NXX) Assignment Guidelines (COCAG) and ATIS-0300066, Thousands-Block (NXX-X) Administration Guidelines (TBPAG) and the creation of ATIS-0300119, Thousands-Block and Central Office Code Administration Guidelines (TBCOCAG).  

 

As a result, PAS will be updated to reflect the new form titles and updated footnotes. Click here to see which forms are changing. In addition, references to the Guidelines in PAS error messages and PAS generated emails will also be updated to correspond with ATIS-0300119, Thousands-Block and Central Office Code Administration Guidelines (TBCOCAG).

 

Effective, ThursdayOctober 31, 2019, the COCAG and TBPAG guidelines and forms will no longer be used or accepted by the PA and NANPA, instead you must now refer to the new TBCOCAG and updated forms.
