Voice regulations

One of the first regions to mandate A-Number (caller) validation and checking against a Do Not Originate (DNO) list was the USA. In trying to prevent internationally generated robocalls that appear to come from a domestic range the FCC mandated that providers not only authenticate calls using STIR/SHAKEN but also check all calls against a DNO list and block any that appear on it. They must also be able to trace calls. The USA is not the only territory to introduce these legislations - the UK introduced a similar requirement to validate against a DNO list in November 2022, Ireland also has a DNO list and others around the world are currently in consultation. By pre-validating A-Numbers, carriers avoid having to block traffic due to uncertainty of origin and can also grow customer confidence with their trusted traffic status.

Messaging Regulations

The messaging industry has been attacked by fraudsters for some time, and regulators are beginning to realise that they need to take action as the industry hasn’t yet been able to tackle the problem. Several territories now insist on CLI validation of SMS messages and Do Not Originate for Text has been launched in the USA and France.
