Morocco to establish a centralised number portability database by June 2017


Morocco’s National Telecommunications Regulatory Agency (Agence Nationale de Reglementation de Telecom, ANRT) has amended the terms and conditions for number portability services in the country with Decision 04/15 of 8 October 2015, following a consultation with the country’s three operators.

The updated legislation is aiming to improve ‘the operational modalities’ of the number portability regime by reducing the time required to port a number, in addition to facilitating the implementation of a centralised number portability database, which should be operational by June 2017. Further, the watchdog said that it will award a contract for the supply, installation and operation of the centralised database shortly.
