The PA is also being directed to withhold assignment of numbering resources to an entity identified by the FCC as delinquent in its payments to the Commission. The planned effective date for this process to begin is October 1, 2004. The PA will then deny the assignment of numbering resources to the identified Operating Company Number (OCN).
