FCC: Exemption from CableCard Requirement

Does anybody have the citation to the specific criteria for a small cable provider to be exempt from the requirement to provide CableCards. I have found lots of reference to "an exemption" but the size seems to vary widely.

I am also looking for a list of waivers that have been granted to otherwise covered providers.

Many thanks.

I don't necessarily have any direct info for you.
Here are a few things that I know of.
The satellite operators are exempt.
Recently, I believe it was Charter that got the go ahead to drop cards in their own boxes and use downloadable security on a trial basis (with a way overly broad ability to drop it fully if one manufacturer took a box to retail).
But several providers have gotten the OK to have boxes decrypt without cablecards.

One more thing my understanding is that non-MSO are exempt. I don't know if that is true, but it might give you a search point.
