All telecommunications companies are required to complete and maintain their company profile using the company/contact web application IUB 24/7.
For companies that are required to register under Iowa Code 476.95A, the IUB 24/7 company record serves as the annual telecommunications registration in compliance with state law. This registration also authorizes a company to obtain telephone numbers, interconnect with other providers of telecommunications service, cross railroad rights-of-way in accordance with Iowa Code 476.27, and provide telecommunications service in Iowa.
For companies that are not required to register, the IUB 24/7 company record allows the company to maintain contact information and report the Dual Party Relay Service (DPRS) assessment.
