The Code specifies who can supply and/or receive data to/from the IPND, as well as the obligations on use of IPND data.

Revision of the Code

The Code was revised in 2007 to bring the Code into alignment with the Telecommunications Act 1997 and the Telecommunications (Section of the Telecommunications Industry) Determination 2007 and other applicable legal requirements and to clarify matters relating to Customers, operational issues and technical issues by re-ordering the content for ease of reading and revising some clauses for improved clarity.

The Code was revised in 2008 to extend by an additional twelve months the delayed timeframe for implementation of aspects of the Code relating to the supply and use of Public Number Customer Data for Location Dependent Carriage Services.
