BIPT is organising a consultation about the extension of the supply of 0800 numbers.

As the administrator of the numbering plan BIPT has to ensure that this plan is administrated as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Within this framework BIPT explains in the consultation that it is concerned about the available supply of 0800 numbers. Eight possible solutions are described.

BIPT does favour the options that raise efficiency instead of changing the numbering plan.

The purpose of this consultation is to obtain feedback from all interested parties about the various options, and to gather any useful remarks so as to choose the best solution.

Depending on the choices made further actions will be needed either in the form of amendments to the Royal Decree of 27 April 2007 on managing the national numbering space and the grant and withdrawal of number user rights or of new Ministerial Orders and/or Council Decisions.

This document introduces and describes the issue. It contains a number of specific questions, which the stakeholders are asked to answer.

Deadline: 8 May 2019.
