Code of Practice for Service Delivery of
Common Mobile Short Codes in the UK for
All Communications Media
Mobile Network Operators currently provide a range of services behind short codes for their own and Service Provider services. There is demand from Service Providers for a straight-forward method of providing short-codes, notably for Premium Communication Services, on a common basis across multiple mobile networks. This code of practice for service delivery introduces this method and is supported by 3, O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone.
Mobile Network Operators have agreed a common structure and approach for short code provision and management. This will assist Service Providers and Content Providers to secure a short code, which will operate across multiple mobile networks and will be applicable to all mobile communications. This development will facilitate customer recognition of new services and will support easier and clearer marketing of these services. The Code also provides for a pricing framework that will contribute to consumer protection from unexpectedly high service charges and inappropriate or unexpected service content.
Mobile Network Operators agree to negotiate with Service Providers and Content Providers to provide common short codes capable of use across all UK mobile networks. Where a code is subject to this scheme participating operators agree that it shall only be used by the party (or their contracted Service Provider) to which it has been provided under the rules of the scheme. The only exception shall be codes in use at the time of formal scheme commencement which shall be subject to transition provisions.
The provision of short code services on any individual mobile network is subject the conclusion of a satisfactory bilateral service agreement between the Service Provider and the individual Mobile Network Operator in question as well as the network's ability to support the each proposed service. No aspect of commercial service delivery is subject to this code of practice and individual Mobile Network Operators are not obliged to enter into a commercial agreement with a Service Provider provided with a short code under this code of practice.
Service Providers using short codes are required to comply with ICSTIS' Code of Practice, the requirements of the Data Protection Act, the code of conduct for access to visual content by minors, European e-Money regulations and other relevant legislation and industry codes. Failure to ensure compliance in the case of services behind short codes may result in revenues being withheld or services being suspended.
