ection F: API Access to USAC Systems
If your company intends to utilize an Application Programming Interface (API) to access either the National
Verifier or the National Lifeline Accountability Database (NLAD) as such functionalities are made available for the
Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program, and you have not previously signed an Interconnection Security
Agreement (ISA) with USAC, please complete and sign the ISA and include it with your election notice for the EBB
Program. Returning the signed ISA will ensure that your company can, at a minimum, access the staging
environment to test the National Verifier and NLAD APIs as they exist for Lifeline (as needed) while USAC
completes necessary system development to put EBB Program workflows in place.
Cs that already use APIs to access the National Verifier or NLAD do not need to sign another ISA at this time.
However, USAC may require ANY participating provider to execute a new or modified ISA or an addendum to an
existing ISA to utilize APIs to access EBB Program workflows in either pre-production (staging) or production
environments once those functionalities are available. You will be notified if additional action is necessary.
