The purpose of this part is to replace Annex 2 of DMO 3000.1, 32A CFR, Chap. I, and to provide specific guidance to Government and private entities who may have new requirements for international telecommunication service during national emergencies. § 202.2 Scope.

The procedures in this part provide guidance for the submission of emergency requirements for telecommunication channels between the United States and overseas or foreign points. Guidance on this subject was previously contained in Annex 2 of DMO 3000.1 and Mobilization Plan IX-3. Mobilization Plan IX-3 has been canceled. $ 202.3 Circuit restoration procedures.

The restoration priority procedures for these emergency requirements shall be in accordance with the order entitled "Priority System for the Use and Restoration of Leased Intercity Private Line Services During Emergency Conditions,” FCC Order 67-51 and DTM, 32 F.R. 791. $ 202.4 Responsibilities.

(a) Executive departments and agencies of the United States, whether or not components of the National Communications System (NCS), shall submit their international emergency telecommunications requirements to the Executive Agent, National Communications System, for coordination and consolidation of mobilization requirements.

(b) The Department of Defense shall coordinate NATO requirements in con

sonance with approved NATO/U.S. procedures for subsequent processing by the Executive Agent, National Communications System.

(c) The Department of State shall coordinate and approve foreign government circuit requirements and then forward them to the Executive Agent, NCS, for further processing. 8 202.5

Other requirements. Those entities, other than Executive departments and agencies of the United States, having need for emergency international telecommunication service shall present their requirements to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). $ 202.6 Coordination of requirements.

(a) The NCS and FCC shall meet periodically to review the total mobilization requirements and to evaluate the impact of these requirements upon the common carriers' capability. If the situation develops in which emergency requirements cannot be provided by the communications common carriers, the Executive Agent, NCS, or the FCC, as appropriate, shall immediately notify the Director of Telecommunications Management of that situation.

(b) The Director of Telecommunications Management will assume the responsibility for coordinating and integrating mobilization requirements which are presented to him, making use of the knowledge, information, and advice of the FCC. These requirements shall be evaluated with due regard to facilities which must remain under the control of the commercial companies and those which must be generally available to the public and the Government. § 202.7 Implementation.

Executive departments and agencies of the United States are authorized to issue such additional orders as are necessary to effect implementation of this part.
