Memo: Reassigned Numbers Database Update

February 10, 2021

Reassigned Numbers Database Update


The FCC released a Public Notice on January 15, 2021. The Reassigned Numbers Database administrator, SomosGov, Inc., has been selected and reporting processes have been outlined for all carriers that receive numbering resources directly from the North American Numbering Plan (NANP).

If you recall, the FCC released an Order on December 13, 2018 in an effort to address unwanted Robocalls. The Order required the establishment of a nationwide Reassigned Numbers Database that will house permanently disconnected telephone numbers. Once established, all carriers that receive numbering resources directly from the NANP will be required to report to the administrator monthly, the last date the telephone number was permanently disconnected. Carriers will report on both disconnected telephone numbers that have been directly assigned to them by the NANP as well as disconnected telephone numbers that had previously been ported into them.
