Releasing 06 numbers in 2020 leads to less shortage

The issue rate for 06 numbers is still high. In 2019, ACM therefore recalled 06 numbers that had not been put into use within a year of being allocated. The numbers will become available again for issuance after a ‘cooling off’ period.

By releasing 1.4 million numbers that came out of the ‘cooling down’ in 2020, the looming shortage of mobile numbers is declined. The issuance percentage of mobile numbers remains high, but in 2020 the percentage fell below 90 percent for the first time since 2012, according to the Number Issuance Monitor for the year 2020.

In the policy rule ‘Allocation and withdrawal of information numbers’, ACM has explained which services are and are not permitted via 090x and 18xy numbers. In addition, ACM has published the Guidance on ‘Preventing deception in forwarding services’. This explains what search results (eg advertisements) and websites of forwarding services must comply with in order not to be misleading.
