A telecommunications provider may request cancellation of its certificate by filing a letter according to Filing Center instructions. The letter should explain any relevant details (e.g., reason for cancellation, such as no longer providing telecommunications services in Oregon, no Oregon customers, etc.). The PUC then issues a cancellation order with an effective date, usually within one to two weeks. If the provider still has customers in Oregon, they must give 90-days notice of the cancellation to customers and the PUC before their certificate may be canceled. The provider must comply with all filing obligations up to the effective date of the cancellation order.
Also, the PUC may cancel a provider’s certificate of authority for failure to comply with the conditions of its certificate, including not complying with the filing requirements.
