Scheduled Review of Integrated Public Number Database Industry Code

Communications Alliance is seeking comments for a scheduled review of the following Code:


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

The aims of the review are to identify:

  • any existing issues with the Code;
  • whether any process improvement is required, from operational experience in dealing with the Code;
  • any gaps in the Code;
  • clarifications that improve requirements;
  • whether the document is meeting the needs of industry and the community satisfactorily;
  • expected impact of technology changes; and
  • whether a need exists to amend, reconfirm or withdraw the Code.

The code review will focus on its obligations and what it delivers, rather than compliance with the code, noting that it operates in the current legislative framework. All comments received will be considered by representatives of stakeholders to prepare a specific recommendation and reasons to revise, reconfirm or withdraw the published document. Note that a review will not necessarily lead to the document being changed with a new version being published.

The Code can be downloaded from here.

You can use the Submit Comments form to submit your comments, submit via email or go to the Contact Us webpage to obtain other contact methods such as by post.

All submissions close at 5 p.m. on Friday 4th November 2022. Submissions received will be made publicly available on the Communications Alliance website unless the submitter requests otherwise.
