IPND Scheme authorisations

The Telecommunications Integrated Public Number Database Scheme 2017 provides for the ACMA to grant authorisations to persons wishing to use and disclose IPND data for the publication and maintenance of a public number directory (PND) or for the conduct of research of a kind specified by the minister as being in the public interest.  

There are no authorisations currently in place to access IPND data for the purpose of conducting research.

The table below lists authorisations under the Scheme that have been granted for the purpose of publishing and maintaining PNDs.
