ENFOPOL-Parallelgesetz CALEA wieder verschoben [US]

Die seit 1994 immer wieder verschobene Deadline zur Einführung der
elektronischen Überwachung von Mobiltelefonie wurde auf Druck der
US-Industrie ein weiteres Mal hinausgerückt. Juni 2000 ist der neue
Termin, wobei es nu gerfährlich wird. Der Staat schiesst 500
Millionen USD zu, um alle Netzwerke abhörtauglich zu machen.

[5] House Extends Deadline for Wiretap Law Compliance
==================================================
=====================

The House of Representatives approved legislation on July 13 that
will make it easier for telecommunications companies to comply with
the Communications Assistance to Law Enforcement Act (CALEA).
The controversial 1994 "digital telephony" law requires the companies
to design their systems to more easily facilitate electronic sur-
veillance. The new legislation (H.R. 916) would allow companies to
recoup more of the expenses that they incur to make their networks
compliant with law enforcement requirements. CALEA authorizes
$500 million in federal funds to reimburse telecommunications firms
make the required changes.

The bill approved by the House would change the compliance date for
companies to be in compliance with the CALEA requirements to
June 30, 2000. It would also set June 30, 2000, as the date after
which the companies cannot submit expenses to the government for
required infrastructure changes. The original cut-off date was Jan. 1,
1995. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) has
introduced similar language in the Senate.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the telecommunications industry
and privacy advocates (including EPIC) are involved in a pending
proceeding before the Federal Communications Commission which
will finalize the technical requirements for CALEA compliance. The
FCC is likely to announce its decision soon.
