- In CISC Canadian Steering Committee on Numbering - Consensus report CNRE106A, Telecom Decision CRTC 2014-603, 20 November 2014 (Telecom Decision 2014-603), the Commission approved the elimination of the split and boundary realignment area code relief methods from the Canadian NPA [Numbering Plan Area] Relief Planning Guideline.
On 28 January 2015, the Canadian Steering Committee on Numbering (CSCN) of the CRTC Interconnection Steering Committee (CISC) submitted the following consensus report for Commission approval:
- Elimination of the Split and Boundary Realignment Relief Methods from consideration during Relief Planning in Canada (CNRE110A)
In its report, the CSCN proposed changes to the following three guidelines:
- the Canadian Central Office Code (NXX) Assignment Guideline;
- the Canadian Number Resource Utilization Forecast (C-NRUF) Guideline; and
- the Canadian MIN Block Identifier (MBI) Assignment Guideline.
- The CSCN noted that these three guidelines contain references to the split and boundary realignment area code relief methods, and proposed that these references be removed.
- The consensus report can be found in the “Reports” section of the CSCN page, which is available in the CISC section of the Commission’s website at www.crtc.gc.ca.
- The Commission considers that the CSCN’s proposed changes would ensure that the three guidelines noted above are consistent with the Commission’s determinations set out in Telecom Decision 2014-603.
- Accordingly, the Commission approves the above-noted consensus report and the modified guidelines.
