TheU.S.government has set July 24, 2012 as the date whenthe collection of information related to closed captioning of Internet protocol-delivered video programming became effective.
On Aug. 6, 2012, the Federal Communications Commission posted a Federal Register notice—Closed Captioning of Internet Protocol-Delivered Video Programming: Implementation of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010—that says on July 24, 2012 the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the information collection for three years.
The collection of closed captioning of Internet video programming is required under the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-260), and in January 2012 the FCC issued a “Report and Order” adopting final rules containing information collection requirements.
The information collection rules became effective on July 24, and they remain effective until July 31, 2015, the FCC says.
