  • December 13, 2012


About inc

About INC

  • The Industry Numbering Committee (INC) provides an open forum to address and resolve industry-wide issues associated with planning, administration, allocation, assignment and use of North American Numbering Plan (NANP) numbering resources within the NANP area.

  • The INC currently has three subcommittees:

    • Resource Assignment and Management (RAM) maintains and develops enhancements to the industry guidelines that provide for assignment to and management of those numbering and addressing resources managed by the Industry Numbering Committee for assignment to/by Service Providers or Users. Examples of such resources are: CO/NXX Codes, Thousands-Blocks, Telephone Numbers, CICs, 555 line numbers etc.

    • Numbering and Addressing Resource Planning (NARP) maintains and develops the industry guidelines for relief or exhaust of current resources and implementation of new numbering or addressing resources. It also develops industry guidelines and reports regarding new, or new uses of, numbering or addressing resources. Examples of such areas of responsibility are NPA Relief Planning and Implementation, NPA Allocation, NANP Exhaust, 500/900 portability, Resources for Machine-to-Machine communications etc.

    • Document Management/Maintenance (DMM) is responsible for managing non-substantive issues to keep INC documents and website up to date, as well as revising documents for readability and usability without changing the technical or regulatory meaning/content of the document(s) being maintained.

Issue 743 clarify timeframes in cocag and tbpag for birrds and npac entries for code holders

Issue 743: Clarify Timeframes in COCAG and TBPAG for BIRRDS and NPAC Entries for Code Holders

  • Most of the pools are being replenished by the opening of new codes. When a new code is opened, the blocks not assigned to the code holder are placed in the available pool but may not be viable until the code holder confirms activation in the PSTN and all other code holder responsibilities have been met.

  • Part of the code holder responsibilities include adding a new pooled code to the Business Integrated Routing and Rating Database System (BIRRDS) and to the NPAC, but the guidelines did not specify a timeframe by which a new pooled code must be added to the NPAC.

  • Delays in adding a new pooled code to BIRRDS and to the NPAC can negatively impact a block holder with a block from that code because the block cannot be put into service. If a block holder cannot use its assigned resources, it may have no alternative other than to seek a safety valve waiver to replenish the pool that otherwise might not need it.

  • INC added a requirement to the CO Code Assignment Guidelines (COCAG) and the Thousands-Block Pooling Administration Guidelines (TBPAG) that pooled codes shall be added to the NPAC within ten calendar days of assignment by NANPA. INC also clarified the existing requirement that pooled codes shall be added to BIRRDS within seven calendar days of issuance of the Part 3.
