The International Public Telecommunication Numbering Plan

In accordance with ITU-T Recommendation E.164 (2010-11)

Note from TSB

ITU-T Study Group 2, which is the leading study group on numbering, naming, addressing, identification and routing, agreed at its meeting of 4 to 13 July 2018 to publish the following statement in ITU Operational Bulletin:

“Global numbers used for the European eCall service

Several number ranges under non geographic country codes are used for eCall, the pan European emergency system for vehicles. These numbers have been assigned by the ITU and they have been available for use in association with eCall service.

These numbers are used as calling party numbers when the device automatically calls the emergency number in the event of an accident. They generally use 15 digit formats. From 31 March 2018, all new type cars sold in Europe must have eCall capability.

In order for the eCall system to operate properly and for the emergency services (e.g. call centres and intervention teams) to dial back the phone numbers used by the eCall systems, it is crucial that the eCall ranges be opened in all networks and that the CLI (Calling Line Identification) for these calls is passed between operators in a correct and diallable format according to the relevant ITU recommendations.

Given the criticality of the service, we want to alert the assignees and all stakeholders on the need for these numbers to be opened and routed on public networks and in particular those in Europe.

The ITU has been notified of the following ranges as being used for eCall: 883 130, 882 39 and 882 37. Other operators using global resources for eCall may also inform the ITU to request similar publications.

The ECC recommendation (17)04 “Numbering for eCall” ( ) also provides more information on numbering options for eCall.


883 130 assigned to Orange: contact Philippe Fouquart,Orange, .

882 39 assigned to Vodafone Group: contact MacDougall Robert, Vodafone Group, .

882 37 assigned to AT&T, contact Mike Corkerry, AT&T, ”.
